Learn how to safely and effectively use hand and power tools. Design and build complex wood projects. Create 2d, 3d, and virtual reality games populated with your own 3d models.

Single Session Shop is a drop-in alternative to Open Shop hours. Guides work with each student to determine a goal for the session and provide the training, time, space, and tools necessary to complete that goal in the given time. Come in to for a quick project or to learn a new skill! Attendance is limited to ensure a better-than-10-to-1 ratio of students to Guides.
