Wood Studio Lathe

 

New lathes would be more dependable for our students and require less maintence and upkeep for our staff.

We would like to create a tool kit for each student with new hand tools.  Six bowl guages would be a fine start to these kits.

Six spokeshaves would also go into the tool kit for each student.

Metalsmithing/Jewelry Studio



Metalsmithing/Jewelry Studio ChairThe current bench chairs are an eclectic mix.  We'd like every student to have the same adjustable chair to assure the best possible working conditions. 

Metalsmithing/Jewelry Studio Task Light

These lights would be mounted on the ceiling which means more work room on the table and more adjustablity to direct the light exactly where you need it.  Eight students in a class means eight lights. 

Metalsmithing/Jewelry Studio Disc Cutter
This disc cutter set will give precise results and last forever. 

Farmhouse Studio

desk chair, computer chairWhen you are creating all day and night, a comfortable chair is important.  The farmhouse studio has three work areas so twelve chairs are needed. 

Many students bring their own sewing machines, but we'd like to have one available for as many students who might want one.  Help us build our inventory. 

fiber art supplies, fabric dyeing, stock pot

Our instructors have asked for larger pots for different dyeing techniques. Happy instructors mean happy students!

Ceramics Studio Full Round Kiln ShelvesLike the half shelves, these full round shelves are light and sturdy and necesary for larger projects and pieces. 

Ceramics Studio Salt Kiln Shelves

A generous potter loaned us shelves when we built the soda kiln a couple years ago.  It's time to invest in our own set of 12 shelves
