Learn how to make the Chicago skyline out of reclaimed barn wood! We'll start in the woodshop with hands-on experience learning some basic woodworking techniques at the table saw and planer. You'll pick out reclaimed wood to assemble into the framework for the skyline, and then we'll take it over to the laser cutter where you'll get to see some advanced woodworking technique in action. Finally, we'll working on finishing the product which you'll get to take home!
Founder of a wood shop and glass manufacturing business in Chicago, I've been working in this field for over a decade. I received my BFA in Sculpture from the University of Illinois, and later went back to school to obtain my Masters from the Art Institute. I now make home and lifestyle products, in addition to custom projects and furnishings, and host classes at my wood shop. I promote and open and fun-loving atmosphere at the shop and always love having new guests in for classes!
This class will be hosted in the Swoon Living studio, which includes an extensive wood shop, two laser cutting machines, a glassblowing facility, and various other pieces of fun miscellaneous equipment. We will be using all of the same tools and equipment our staff uses daily to produce our high end home goods and furnishings.
