I really enjoyed this and learned quite a bit! I feel more confident about using the tools to do other things now

Brianna was an awesome instructor. Enthusiastic, full of energy, super knowledgeable and so approachable for any questions. She demo’d a range of tools and pieces of equipment in the workshop in a way that was straightforward and easy to remember. So awesome! The workshop itself was also a ton of fun. The makerspace was really well equipped and the other students were a friendly bunch. It was also pretty interesting to see other people working in the space on personal projects... super inspiring. At the end of the class, we had our 5 board bench to take home. My girlfriend was impressed. We use it as a TV stand now in our living room. It’s very much our vibe! Thanks again guys

Hi there, had a good time in this class. We were well supported by the teacher, learnt about the tools and came home with a great bench that impressed the family. I also have a better understanding of how to fit wood together so it will support weight.
