CLASSES & WORKSHOPS OFFERED 
 
Student incidental fee-paying OSU students will be able to use our studios, *woodshop has special usage policies*.
Student Incidental Non-fee paying OSU Students can pay for a Winter 2022 term membership and access our studios. 
 
START HERE: First please fill out our membership form if you haven't already for WINTER 2022 Term. Students will need to fill out a new membership form each term. 
 
NEXT STEP: Some studio areas require a  Studio Orientation to acclimate you to the space and how the studio functions. These are meant for students with some
prior experience working in a given medium and studio. A schedule of Orientations will be available from our front desk. In most of these areas our desk staff are able to give a basic orientation as their level of busyness with other members at the front desk allows. 
 
 
TO USE THE WOODSHOP:
All students must attend a WOOD ORIENTATION in order to use the woodshop - available any time during our Tech Hours and by special arrangement. In order to have use of the large woodshop equipment, you must first pass a SAW> SAFETY ASSESSMENT WORKSHOP. These can be conducted by arrangement with our Wood Tech, or at the following times:
TBA (schedule available at Front Desk)
 
*Use of large equipment requires a $20 lab fee each term, due at time of being cleared for a level 2 or higher use after completion of a  SAW.
 
If your level of experience is above beginner but not at the level where you are comfortable taking a SAW, the access you will have is to hand tools (available for check out at the front desk). 
 
If you are a total novice but you are interested in using the studio and learning, we recommend you take a class or workshop, where you will gain a good foundation to fine woodworking  and safe big equipment operation.
