Workbench Class At Home - Instruction That Goes Beyond YouTube Videos
Updated: Jul 31, 2020
I've designed this class to go beyond students trying to translate videos to skills on their own. An important part of taking a class is having an instructor there to watch you at the bench and answer the question "What am I doing wrong here?"
More Than Just Videos
So yes, there will be recorded instruction posted online that takes the place of the demonstrations I normally give before each step in my classes. Additionally, you'll get an hour each week of one-on-one time to address any specific questions you have about the project, technique, or woodworking in general. Unlike in-person classes, the one-on-one calls will be recorded and shared privately so you can refer back to them as often as you need.
Learn With a Group
Students often value learning together because everyone brings a different perspective and set of skills to the class. To get closer to the experience of a live class you'll have the chance to participate in weekly group video chats and access to a private chat room that's open 24 hours a day. Students will be encouraged to ask questions and provide solutions as needed and I'll be checking in daily as well. Having other students available to problem solve between group meetings or one-on-one visits will keep you moving forward if you ever feel stuck. The friendships that you build while learning from and helping other students will last well beyond the end of class.
