Tools are meant to be used by humans. I think that we learned to think by using them. By using tools, our hands made a connection to our brains and then our curiosity gene dove in and our minds grew because of this. We discovered so much about the world poking about in it with our hands. And by using the power of the wedge, we learned to do all sorts of things from carving to cleaving to sawing and planing.
Discover the skills you possess by using your hands to create something wonderful with us in the Studio. Next week we’ll start four weeks of the Hand Tool Shop. Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm each day, each week we’ll concentrate on different hand tool skills and different projects. It was a blast last year. Come join us for one week or take all four for a discounted tuition. Make the connection.
