Student and Adult Workshop Club - new initiative

posted 23 Aug 2016, 21:10 by OC Web   [ updated 23 Aug 2016, 21:25 ]
Ōtaki College is inviting registration of interest for the Student and Adult Workshop Club.

This club will be run at the College workshops on Tuesday nights 7 - 9pm each week. The purpose of this club is for students to share a workshop experience with their family, to go on a journey together, making something useful for your home.

This is for novice through to expert, with technical and creative support from the teaching staff to help with the machines, tools, processes and materials to make an item of your choice. Projects could be coffee tables, clocks, lamps, games, garden sculpture, table furniture or many other bright ideas. Processes may include: welding, plasma cutting, wood construction, metal and wood lathe work. 

There will be a small cost for the use of the college facilities and a material cost based on projects selected and material bought in by members.

There will be limited places per workshop evening. If there is sufficient demand we may offer a second workshop evening later in the week.

To explore ideas and see if this is a good fit for your family, please contact Marcus Thompson (mtp@otakicollege.school.nz) or Chris Georgetti (cgt@otakicollege.school.nz) via phone (364 8204) or email at Ōtaki College.
