The Woodshop is open to all members of the SMFA community, and offers fabrication and safety training in support of a wide variety of sculptural approaches. Whether you want to make stretcher bars for your paintings, frames for your prints, or structures for your installations, students get the support they need for projects. The shop is well-equipped to accommodate projects involving anything from woodcarving to furniture and guitar making, to installation work. A variety of hand tools are available to all students and students who have taken proper safety training gain access to the shop’s power tools.

Work in this shop requires the supervision of a studio manager or studio monitor at all times, as well as the completion of a safety training workshop.

To work in this studio, you must first be trained by an instructor or studio manager.

If you would like to be trained to use the studio, email the studio manager.
