Armed with some basic tools and a little know-how, children will learn how to use tools safely to do simple joining!

They will have the opportunity to use hammers and handsaws to build a small object to take home in this fun Sydney beginners woodworking class.

Using zero-waste principles and reuse materials, we’ll explore how to upcycle existing objects using timber additions. Kids will learn how to use some of the following tools depending on the project of the day: screwdrivers, pliers, handsaws, hammers, clamps and wood glue. Each class group will make something different depending on the reuse resources available at the time.

This Sydney class is suitable for ages 8 to 12 years. If you are looking for fun kids activities in Sydney, then this is perfect.
