I’m the Event Coordinator for North End Makerspace, a new makerspace in North Seattle. We have a small woodshop and I would love to find some teachers to teach some skill building classes. We do not have a lot of equipment. We do not have a table saw. We have a 12" bandsaw, a miter saw, drill press, scroll saw, belt sander and hand held router (no table). We also have a 35’x35" CNC and various hand tools. Also a circular saw, jig saw and Dremel. We have a planar but I don’t think it’s working currently.
I’d love to see classes on small projects to build skills. Maybe band saw boxes? Picture frames?
We are a non profit, but we can pay, either by splitting the proceeds from the class 50-50 with the teacher or arrange a flat fee. Our woodshop is SMALL, so class size would have to be very small as well (probably not more than 4 students). We require all teachers, members, and students to show proof of vax and wear masks at this time, though we are re-evaluating our mask policy monthly.
I’d love to talk to anyone interested in helping us out by teaching a class, or answer any other questions you might have. If you are interested in teaching, I would recommend arranging to come by and see the shop so you can see the tools we have available. You can find general information at www.northendmakers.org
