HOW LONG IS IT?

3 hour session

Woodlab Unplugged

This is a regular Wednesday evening session 6pm - 9pm. Each week we explore a technique or joint and then practise it. Attendees can follow the session or just concentrate on their own work. The idea is to hone hand tool skills - the traditional but no less important cutting of joints using marking gauges, saws and chisels. The only theme is that the machines are off. Quiet time. Though there could well be music.

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.
