ONSITE: WTF (Woman, Trans, Femme) Woodworking: Make a Flower Press

This class is a safe space for women, trans, and femme folks to learn introductory woodworking techniques. Make your own flower press in just a few hours! Students will learn to make rip and crosscuts, use the drill press and learn to hand sand. Gain experience using the table saw, mitre saw, band saw, jointer and planer. We will respect marginalized identities, be patient with one another, use accessible language and we won't leave anyone behind.
