The Carpentry 101 course is designed for beginners to learn the safety, maintenance and practical applications of essential hand and power tools used for general carpentry and basic woodworking. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate competency in safety and basic use of the tools required to build a folding camp chair that each student will build during the course and retain after the class.
Each year, using proceeds from our Red Ants Pants Music Festival, we host a three-day-plus Timber Skills Course designed to empower and educate women of all skill levels on the basic understanding, maintenance and operation of hand and power tools. The workshop is limited to 12 female participants per section and are led by female professionals in their field.
