Calling all Lumberjanes! Join Lesley Jackson in an entry level woodworking class for developing basic design/ build skills while working with other women.

During this 4 week course, you will make a custom bench or stool inspired by a female designer from the last century. We will learn about Lina Bo Bardi’s sustainable furniture and Charlotte Perriand’s domestic spaces that sought to liberate women, using their work to inform and empower our own designs.

This class is open to anyone that identifies as non-binary or female.

NOTE: This class takes place on four consecutive Mondays (Feb 11,18, 25, and Mar 4). Attendance for all 4 classes is required.

About the Instructor

Lesley Jackson is an artist and instructor at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Lesley has taught wood and metal working, sculpture, and furniture design at various schools and non-profit organizations over the past five years. Her focus as an instructor is to empower people to build the world they wish to live in through access to opportunities in DIY design.

This class is part of a series of collaborative events that use woodworking as a means to build self-esteem, engage in environmental sustainability, form communities between disparate groups of people, and break down stereotypes and gender roles within the wood and metal industries.
