Open Studios are resuming on Fridays, with a few changes:
During this test period, which will run from November into February, private donors are funding the pay for the professionals. We expect that past the trial period, there will be a fee to cover the costs. And, depending on demand and safety monitor availability, we may expand to offer this on multiple Fridays each month.
Members are welcome to ask the pro for suggestions about design, joinery, finishes or other details. This isn't a class with an agenda driven by an instructor, but rather an opportunity for woodworkers to ask questions and get advice from someone with years of professional experience. The pro will not be teaching how to operate the tools.
As with all Open Studio sessions, a safety monitor will be on duty and will be responsible for safety. You will be able to work on projects of your own choosing.
