Table Saw Intensive
The table saw is perhaps the most versatile tool in any woodshop but is also one of the more dangerous and intimidating. In this workshop we will focus on the table saw, what it can do and what it can't, how to use it safely and what can go wrong. We will discuss jigs that make specific cuts more safe, easy and accurate, work with the dado set and go over more advanced operations (bevel cuts, rabbets, etc).
Frame Building I & II

Digital Lab Basic Orientation
Understanding Histograms: an introduction to Photoshop
Shooting RAW affords a great deal of control and improved image quality not possible shooting jpg only. We will explore these many advantages and introduce the primary tool for dealing with RAW images: Adobe Camera Raw.
Printing and the Digital Darkroom
The digital darkroom gives us many new ways of working with images, both scanned film as well as digital photos. Using Photoshop and our HP Z3200 printer we will explore techniques and concepts for getting the most out of our digital files.
Documenting Your Work
It is extremely important that your art is displayed in the best possible manner. In many aspects of photography color and other aspects of the image are highly subjective. When attempting to convey your work to others (galleries, grant applications, etc.), the most accurate representation of your work is critical. In this workshop we will look at how to ensure that the digital reproductions of your work are as true to the originals as possible.
