Cambridge Center for Adult Education is currently hiring a part-time teaching position starting Fall 2019 for a class, Woodworking: Build a Box.
We are looking for an experienced woodworker to join our small team of shop instructors. Preference would be given to those with previous teaching experience who can teach the class beyond the fall term. This class is geared towards complete beginners with no woodworking experience, and the instructor should feel comfortable working with those who need attention and guidance.
Become familiar with typical woodworking tools and the basics of joinery and construction techniques by building the foundational shape from which most furniture and structures are constructed: a box! We will discuss different types of wood and what factors go into your choice of material. We will also discuss different types of joints, and both the structural and aesthetic reasons you may want to use one joint method over another.
This class meets for 8 Monday nights, 6-9pm, from September 16- November 18, with no class on October 14 and November 11 for holidays.
