Applications will be accepted for summer classes up to the first day of each class.
Admission to Workshops
Summer classes are intended to give beginning and intermediate woodworkers an opportunity to participate in an intensive, high-quality educational experience of relatively short duration.
Workshops run from 8:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M., with the privilege of evening hours at the discretion of the instructors. Classes take place in the Fine Woodworking shop at 440 Alger Street, Fort Bragg. The College provides each student with a workbench, access to machine and power tools, and wood for exercises. Materials used in projects are purchased by the student.
All students must provide a complete set of hand tools adequate for the work to be undertaken; no hand tools are available at the shop. Applicants to the Techniques classes should also be familiar with the operation and use of the following machine tools: table saw, joiner, planer, drill press, and router. Due to the intensive nature of the workshops, there is little time available to instruct students in the basic use of machine tools. If you apply for a place in the workshop, please be prepared to abide by these requirements, which are necessary for your safety.
Application for Workshops
Applications for summer workshops will open in February, 2017.
Unless otherwise noted, each workshop has twenty-three places available. These are filled as applications are received. Successful applicants will be notified by May 1, 2017. The notification will include registration materials that must be returned (with fees) in two weeks. If we do not have a minimum number of students in attendance on the first day of class, the course will be canceled (as required by the college administration). While there is no way to foresee complications that might require you to withdraw from the class, please do not apply for the course unless you definitely plan to attend. If you must cancel, please inform us as soon as possible. The demand for some classes has historically exceeded capacity.
Deposited class fees, less $50, will be refunded only up to four weeks before the beginning of any class. No refunds will be issued within the four weeks before a class.
Applications for the summer workshops require only the application form. No payment is required until registration materials are sent.
Return applications for the summer workshops to the following address, by email, surface mail or in person.
