About the Instructor:

James has been a maker and woodworker for as long as he can remember. As a child he would sneak into his dad’s cabinet shop to steal wood scraps. He’d glue together these scraps of wood to make “planes”, “horses”, and other object inspired abstract arts. James has managed woodworking and metals shops for a number of theatrical organizations. In these shops he learned multi material building techniques, faux finishes, and fine carpentry and welding. He now practices woodworking as a hobby.

*** All attendees must wear face masks and adhere to MAKE’s cleaning protocols. Thank you for your cooperation!
