Event Details

Ever wanted to learn how to use a power saw?

Urban Boatbuilders is holding a special WTF tools training, “Band Saws and Bagels!” Saturday July 21st from 9:00am-12:00pm. WTF is a volunteer night for women, transgender, and femme-identified people. Woodworking and boatbuilding is traditionally a male-dominated field, and these nights serve as a space to empower WTF-identified people to develop skills and build confidence.

These trainings serve as an orientation and first step for our ongoing volunteers, so if you’re interested in getting involved, this serves as a great first step. You can expect information about our programs and how volunteering with Urban Boatbuilders benefits our youth program and their work. This will be followed by basic hand and power tools training (band saw, drill press, 12″ disc sander, and chop saw).

Come by for a great morning with bagels, power tools, and getting to meet other WTFers in the Twin Cities who are in trade!
