Woodworking Instructor, Brad Fritz, will return to the CMOV to lead workshops for kids age 5-adult every First Friday of the month, September 2015-May 2016, 5-8pm.

With handmade lathes and traditional hand tools, Brad will lead participants through various wood-shaping processes from splitting, turning, and shaving rough-cut lumber to assembling finished tools and toys of Lydia’s era.
