Thread: Any woodworking classes in the Los Angeles area?

  1. #1

    Any woodworking classes in the Los Angeles area?

    My friend who lives in the San Fernando Valley wants to take wood working classes. I'm not aware of anything in that area but I told him I would ask. I'm sure that someone here would know if there are any classes in that area.

    Thanks for any help.

    Actually William came from Cerritos college woodworking program before opening his own school.

    Does he want to take semester type courses, or one day or one week type courses? For semester type courses, Cerritos is the best, but they only offer classes during the week now. The do offer "extension" classes on the weekend but the subject matter is limited and they're more expensive.

    For week long courses, William Ng School is available but the classes are expensive. Woodcraft in Stanton offers one day classes on the weekends but the subject matter is limited. They don't offer furniture building courses because that takes more than a day.

    The third Thursday evening of each month (7 pm) is the meeting of the SF Valley Woodworking Club. At the recreation room of Balboa Park in Encino. They have a website: www.sfvalleywoodworkers.org. If that doesn't work, try .com.

    The woodcraft store in Ventura offers day classes on various topics / projects. I am taking a three day course on guitar building right now.
