Houston, TX – Both Rockler Woodworking and Hardware Stores in the Houston area – Houston and Spring – are offering hands-on, “Make & Take” project classes throughout April to celebrate National Woodworking Month. Participants can learn basic woodworking skills while handcrafting items and will build a complete project in just a few hours that they can take home. Each class size is limited to as few as three participants and will cost from $25.00 to $60.00 with all materials included. Instruction will be provided by Rockler’s expert woodworkers and teachers so no experience or tools are needed.
Projects include a custom knife; a turned handle for a bottle opener, ice cream scoop or pizza cutter; a wireless speaker; and a custom sign. Participants can sign up for any or all of the classes, and they’ll leave with a completed project after each class. Plans, overview videos and materials will also be available online for those who want to make the projects on their own.
The “Make & Take” class series is especially well-suited for beginners or those with limited woodworking experience. Class size is limited so that attendees have access to as much guidance and instruction as needed.
Children under the age of 18 are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must sign a waiver. Each class will last 2 to 3 hours and will focus on a single project.
Classes will be held at Houston and Spring – click the store links below for more details and to sign up online.
Classes start April 4th and class size is limited so be sure to sign up early!
