Mother/Daughter Builder Bootcamp - Mother's Day Edition!

What better way to spend Mother’s Day than using power tools together?! In this mother/daughter edition of our Builder Bootcamp class, mothers** and daughters (ages 9+) are invited to learn the basics of building in a woodshop. Whether you’re totally flummoxed by Home Depot, or want to become the go-to fix-it family in your neighborhood, this class is for you. You’ll learn how to properly use a wide variety of hand tools and power tools, measuring and layout techniques, sanding and finishing, and tricks of the trade for efficiency and craft. We’ll use a chop saw, jigsaw, bandsaw, drill, driver, belt sander, tape measure, and speed square all in 3 hours! And best of all, you will put all these skills to use to complete your very own wooden toolbox to take home (to fill with tools, obviously!). Each mother/daughter duo will build a toolbox together (Building is Bonding!) and leave with a beautiful reminder of their work together.

**Aunts, big sisters, grandmothers, and other female grown-up guardians are welcome too!

Minimum age for child: 9 years and up
