I miss this scene. A group of excited students show up on Monday morning and experience green wood for the first time. Like everyone else, my teaching has completely dried up. I’m lucky that I have a diverse means of income; tools and chair parts are selling better than ever, and I’ve even had a few orders for pitch forks and other fun projects. Plus I’ve had time to play around with a new tool that we may start making, a scraper for chair seats.
But I miss teaching. So I’ve decided to try a series of online classes. One of my students is a tech guy and he’s holding my hand as I figure this out. Our idea is that each class will be relatively cheap and comprised of two parts, each about two hours long. The first session will be a demonstration of skills and techniques (and maybe projects?), then you’ll have a chance to try what you learned in your own shop, then we’ll have a session to answer questions the next day. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I want to start with one class relatively soon, see how it goes, then tweak it from there. But what class should I do?
If this idea interests you, would you mind filling out this survey and helping me pick my first class. All ideas are welcome and encouraged. Many thanks!
