What you can build in this shop
Build your own shelving: beginner level woodworking.
In this five-week course we will design and create a beautiful shelf, perfect for your individual home.
The most important part of a sturdy and functioning shelf is the bracket that holds it to the wall. In this class we will learn how to create structure so we can fasten a shelf to an existing wall. We will talk about the angles that are needed to create the appropriate strength to hold just about anything.
You will learn how to safely use a compound miter saw, table saw, handheld electric drill, and screwdriver, four of the most important tools in constructing just about anything.
At the end of this class you will walk away with a beautiful piece, tailored to your individual style and ready to be installed in that perfect place in your home.
Mixed-media sculpture: Beginner level sculpture class
This is a five-week, in-depth look at what is mixed media sculpture.
In this class we will look at different ways to combine a variety of materials, thereby creating an expressive piece of art individual to your creative aesthetic. We will work with the simple beauty and difference between materials, study the different aspects of design, and learn how to express ourselves through a three-dimensional creation.
Through researching the work of experienced mixed media sculptures we will create our own design and learn the different ways to combine materials to create a singular piece, utilizing tools and fasteners in a more creative way rather than just functionally.
Participants are encouraged to bring a piece of material or object as inspiration or foundation for their sculpture.
At the end of this five-week course we will schedule a gallery time and display our work for a select group of friends and family.
A place for tinkerers, makers, and small businesses to have space, contacts, and equipment to thrive. If you possess a passion for creating and making, a MINT membership is for you.
