Students gain knowledge of timber materials both natural and processed. They learn skills in manipulating these materials through using machines and equipment, power tools and hand tools. The tasks and projects are designed to be useful as functional and aesthetic work pieces and will give students a variety of experiences in woodwork. Small items of furniture, jewellery boxes, desk tidy pieces as well as turned woodwork lathe projects will be undertaken. Students will be using the Wood Technology workshop and equipment to gain experience to prepare them for possible further studies and careers where practical know how and hands on skill and creativity are required. These skills are also very handy around the home as more of us become home renovators!
