Classes and Workshops

Classes and Workshops

Chisel offers dynamic classes and workshops in woodworking and furniture design


Plug and Play

Chisel workshops and courses are fun, easy and accessible for our busy lives. We take care of the space, tools and logistics so that you can enjoy community, learn hands-on skills and create art.


This Isn't Paint by Number

Intimate class sizes and studio sessions of four to six people each ensure that participants benefit from rapid skill-sharing and one-on-one support from a maker and educator with 13 years of experience in and out of art school. 


Won't Leave Empty-Handed

Participants take away meaningful connections, worthy skills and a handcrafted piece of 3D art. Best of all, they have the chance to carve out what creativity means in their lives. 


All classes and workshops are limited to 4-6 students to maximize personal attention and hands-on woodworking time for all students, and are taught by Chisel Chief Designer and Director of Community Education, Rachel McKenna, MFA
