The Wood Shed
Participants in our Awakenings Day Program have the awesome opportunity to learn the art of wood-crafting at "The Wood Shed". Our wood working shop is located at our Plaza 8 office in Clifton Park. It is here that Life Skills Coach, Robert Daly, works with our people to teach them how to use a lathe to create a variety of items. They learn the whole process from the types of wood, to tool and equipment safety and operation, to the finishing touches. As participants become independent with the process, they are able to create a variety of wood pens, bottle openers & toppers, and so many other items. This is a wonderful way of tapping into individual potential and creativity.
