Jun 04 - 08 2018
701 CCA Summer Camp: Dovetail Box and Hand Tool Workshop

Children and teens ages 6 to 17 have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the arts, creating artwork under the guidance of local artists and art instructors. Students are able to work in several art making activities!

Students will learn fundamental woodworking and hand tool skills to create their own dovetail box with a sliding lid. By discussing the nature of trees and the organic composition of wood, they will learn to work with the material efficiently and gain a deeper understanding of one of our oldest and most valuable traditions. The class will cover some simple math and geometry as well as structural and artistic design concepts which will help us to make a strong and beautiful box.
