Private Lessons

Private lessons can be designed to fit around specific projects, techniques, or private groups. What is possible during a private lesson will vary on each student and their skills and experience level. This can be hard to ascertain without having first worked with someone so please contact us at to discuss further.

Private lessons will be charged in hour increments and not by outcome, project, technique, or other rubric of success. Lessons are sold in minimum blocks of three hour time slots. We will give you our best estimate for the time required to accomplish your goals and if we think private lessons are the correct course to achieve them. Lessons are charged at $85/hr - with three hour minimum. Students are responsible for all materials costs. Hew is a working shop with deadlines, meetings, etc that may take scheduling priority. Please contact us to schedule.

Discounts can be given for small groups. Group size limits may apply. Contact us for more information,


We try to provide as safe of an environment as possible and teach and observe best practices to limit the chance of injury. That said workshops are held in a wood studio and students will be using sharp tools and machines that have the potential to cause serious injury to them or others. Students must understand the potential consequences and take responsibility for following all safety procedures. Everyone brings with them different levels and types of experience with tools and craft practices (which is great!) - as such, students will be limited in their shop use to what is covered in their workshop. If you’re taking a class - you probably don’t know everything about woodworking - if you ever feel uncomfortable or unsure - just ask.

All students will be required to sign a liability awareness and release waiver prior to every workshop to ensure that all students understand the inherent risks and their personal responsibilities to maintain a safe environment for both themselves and others.

Students may not use the facilities if under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
