Woodworking Short Course Provides Long Term Skills

Thursday, 21 March 2019


Wodonga TAFE’s Woodworking 101 (NA18WOOD) short course is a non-accredited skills building workshop that gives students a wide range of skills applicable to a variety of projects.

The course was designed to cover skills that are relevant to working with timber and suitable as a kick-start to a timber-based career or for those interested in DIY projects.

Throughout the 13 sessions (held every Thursday night), students develop their knowledge of using power tools safely and learn the importance of precise measurement being applied to a project.

They conduct a project that develops their confidence in joining and construction using both native Australian hardwoods as well as exotic timbers.

The skills learnt throughout this short course are transferable and aim to increase a student’s confidence in the processing of timber projects. With the course being suitable for any skill level it can be enjoyed and benefited from by everyone.

“This course is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain a wide range of woodworking skills that can be used at the home, at work or even applied to future study opportunities,” Jesse Van Egmond, Wodonga TAFE’s Cabinet Making Teacher explains.

“The course is conducted in a relaxed environment, with students having the opportunity to discuss with me any areas of training they are requiring a bit more assistance with, and can even bring in their projects from home for expert guidance if they would like.”

Wodonga TAFE offers Woodworking 101 on Thursday evenings from 6pm – 9pm with the next enrolment period beginning 18 July until 17 October 2019.
