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

This class is a safe space for women, trans, and femme folks to learn introductory woodworking techniques. You'll learn to make a simple stool and be able to customize it. 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 not leave any student behind.
