This event has passed Get tickets

Event description


    Our very popular 5 week series of 2 hour workshops covers some of the equipment found in our wood workshop.  It's suitable for novices or anyone wishing to upskill, particularly in power-tools and machinery.  If you are new to woodworking, attending this workshop is a requirement of our Membership sessions which we are currently trialling on a Tuesday evening.

    ​​Each workshop session offers the chance to use different tools and machinery in a supportive, friendly setting while doing good for the community building items for our partner, Urban Ark - Manawa Taiao.
