PUBLIC ClassES

You do not need to be a member of Ideaworks to take our classes.

Ideaworks’ approach to learning differs from classrooms where books and theory take precedence. At Ideaworks, we take the learning process into the shop or studio and experience learning through our hands.

We believe in encouraging a hands-on approach with a clear emphasis on safety, skill, and process. This foundation enables students to build on their interests personally and professionally. After initial classes, members will find infinite possibilities to explore and refine their abilities at Ideaworks.

Young people are welcome in most of our classes, but please note that a parent or designated adult may be required to accompany minors under the age of 18. Feel free to call or email for clarification. -Thanks

      This introductory class focuses on wheel throwing and basic glazing. It is perfect for a group of friends, family, couples or even by yourself (you will make friends in this class, we promise). In this class, you will be learning the basics of forming a ball of clay into a beautiful vase, cup, mug, bowl, or plate using an electric potter's wheel. If you’re feeling especially inspired to take on more… how about a bird feeder or planter!?! The possibilities are endless with pottery.

      This class has an extended format, meeting six sessions instead of four and allowing almost a doubling of productive class time. Please be prepared to attend every session! (Note that there will be no class on August 25th)

      All materials will be provided. Additionally, the items you create go home with you to share with your friends and family. All items made are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.

      What Not to Wear:

      • Do wear comfortable clothing that is easily laundered.
      • Please trim fingernails short. Long nails make manipulating clay on the potter's wheel very difficult. Similarly, rings, bracelets, and wristwatches will damage your creations.
      • Do not wear any dangling jewelry or lanyards that can get caught in machinery. 
      • Do not wear clothing with loose sleeves or draped or dangling elements that can get caught in machinery
      • No open toe shoes (anywhere in the facility)
      • Long hair and beards must be securely tied back.
      • Currently face masks are recommended but not required in the facility. A cotton cloth mask with ties instead of ear loops must be well secured with no dangling tie ends.

In this class, you will examine the entire work flow of the CNC process, learn how to import geometry, investigate certain editing techniques, and the necessary requirements to create the g-code for tool calibration.  This final process will include setting feed and speed, how to input specifications of the raw material, etc. Finally, students will be able learn how to setup the device, how to load and secure materials, and how to set the home position and run a simple job.  This introductory class does not include any Computer Aided Design (CAD) instruction.

                This unique class provides information and techniques that differ from those used on other CNC machines at Ideaworks. Certification on other similar machines does not grant permission to use others. Ideaworks members who have completed another Ideaworks CNC certification may register for this course at the "I Want More!" rate.

                Upon completion of this introductory class, students will have earned their Programming Level 1.  Programming Level 2 can be earned after running a minimum of 5 successful jobs while under instructor supervision.  This level includes programming and operation. Unsupervised access will be determined by instructor approval only.

                Prerequisites:

                • Basic understanding of Windows File Structure
                • Basic arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division)

                What Not to Wear:

                • Do not wear any dangling jewelry or lanyards that can get caught in machinery.

                    Beginning Woodshop runs for 3 sessions of 4 hours and assumes no previous woodworking experience.  The goal is to train students in the basic use and safety aspects of the major tools in the woodshop.  

                    Students should plan to attend all three classes.  

                    The first meeting will cover  basic safety and project selection.  The second and third sessions will be devoted to a project that will reinforce the skills learned on day 1.  We will be using many of the tools we practiced on, as well as some layout and marking skills, to build a small project that you will be able to take home and be proud of!

                    What Not to Wear:
