School offers youth woodworking training

The New England School of Architectural Woodworking is offering woodworking workshops for elementary, middle school and high school students.

Available as after-school programs, weekend classes or summer camp, these workshops encourage students to use problem-solving skills while learning how to accurately measure and safely use a variety of hand and power tools, according to the school.

“We hope these classes get young people excited about being in a shop and working with tools,” school director Greg Larson said in a statement. “These are skills that can serve someone for a lifetime, regardless of his or her chosen career path.”
