Anzar High School will be offering a wood shop class for community members starting Sept. 26. The class has been made possible through a Community Foundation for San Benito County grant.


This beginning woodworking class will offer instruction in workshop safety, use and care of tools, types of wood and how wood can be cut and joined to make things both useful and beautiful.


Community members who have never picked up a hammer or cut a piece of wood are welcome to take this class and learn. The class will start with basic box-making and progress to simple carving and an introduction to wood turning on the lathe. You will learn to use all major power tools in the woodshop and many hand tools.


Instructor Dan Faurot-Daniels invites any community member age 14 and up to join the class. There will be a one-time fee of $185 for non-San Benito County residents. The community foundation grant will reduce the one-time fee to $85 for San Benito County residents.

The woodshop class will be held on Tuesday evenings from 4-6pm beginning on September 26, 2017 through November 28, 2017 in the Woodshop (room 403) at Anzar High School, 2000 San Juan Highway, San Juan Bautista, CA 95045.
