Thanks for your interest in Woodworking!
On this page you will find an up-to-the-minute list of classes.
If you see a class you would like to attend please follow the SIGN UP button to register. If the listing does not have a SIGN UP button this means the class is full and/or is no longer available, however you may add your name to the WAITLIST by clicking the link and navigating the Workshops tab to find the class/workshop you are interested in, then add your name to the waitlist.
Many of our classes are geared towards beginners and will give you a taste of what it's like to make something with your hands, while giving you time to practice.
We suggest starting with BASIC classes until you feel comfortable on the machines. Just like any other skill, we do better the more we practice. With that in mind, every class is designed to teach you new techniques and give you opportunities to practice.
Most classes require SAFETY ORIENTATION as a prerequisite but some like Metal and Wood Combos or Turning classes do not. For more detailed information, including pricing, please click on the class titles.
In order to maximize learning opportunities and minimize down time, we limit most of our classes to 6 students. As a result, most of our classes/workshops fill up a week or two in advance.
Wondering what to take first or what to take next? Check out our Curriculum page.
If our schedule does not work with your schedule ,or if you simply learn better one-on-one, consider private lessons.
Several times a month we partner with Molten Metal Works (next door) for Metal & Wood Combo Classes Combos are little tasters - usually one session at CW and one session at MMW (unless otherwise noted). In order to take a combo you must be at least 18 years old.
AGE REQUIREMENTS: Woodworking classes are open to those 15 and older, unless otherwise noted in the class description, however, if you are under 18 years of age, you will need to have your parent or guardian sign a liability waiver before you to attend. Liability waivers must be signed at the shop during business hours or at the start of class. If you do not have a signed liability waiver you will be not be able to participate and you will lose your registration fee.
If you have any questions about classes/private lessons please email or call 626-808-3725. While we do our best, we are a small business and can not always respond quickly. Thanks in advance for your patience and thanks again for your interest!
