Re: [MedievalSawdust] new topic - classes
- I haven't taught any classes, but I took my first woodworking class because it was a hands-on class. I got to make a 3 legged campstool. Even got to cut the wood from the tree with a 2-person saw. I had a blast. :-)Sara Sophia

The hands on portion was an optional portion of trying out some of my hand made tools, plus a side by side trial between a spoon bit and a twist bit in the same hand drill.So my questions are:Is it common for woodworking classes to be this one sided (10 to 0) ?Do other people find the ladies scared off by hands on work?What can we do to change this?Mark
