Students will finish their boxes at home and may finish the interiors if they wish. 4 different sizes Special tools: apron and safety glasses or goggles PLEASE NOTE: This is the same class that was taught last year.

to her patterns. She has also developed an interest in the Nantucket style of weaving, using wood molds that they produce in their shop.
