Woodworking Course with Girls with Drills (12-16 years old) | Bright Box Makerspace | Wednesday, 31. July 2019

You asked us to provide this workshop for your daughters, so here goes! I have a feeling this will book fast, so please do not delay.
This will be a course of 3 woodworking workshops for teens (12-16) this summer. We are also offering a one-day workshop making planters for teens.
We meet each Wednesday (31 July - 14 August) from 1 to 4 pm.
In this workshop, you'll learn the basic functions of a drill, how to make a pilot hole and how to choose the right screw for the job. We'll also show you different ways to join wood using a drill to make furniture.
Each week you'll complete a project:
Week 1: Planters
Week 2: Shelves
Week 3: Your own project
There's flexibility in each week. We'll show you how to make a specific project and you'll have the creative freedom to create what you'd like with those materials.
At this workshop, you can learn these techniques and skills:


The basics of using a drill

Creating a pocket hole

Using a handsaw

Parents, you can drop your young people off from 12.45 am and pick up from 4 pm. Please bring a water bottle.
We're all about social inclusion. If your young person would benefit from this workshop, but there are barriers to them accessing it, please get in touch. We can offer financial assistance to a limited number of individuals. We can make adjustments to some of our workshops depending on barriers to access. Please get in touch for more details.
