Common Sense Courses

  At The DUMBO Workshop we offer a straight-forward, project-based curriculum designed to teach you the fundamentals of working with your hands and tools--safely and sensibly. You’ll learn how to approach a wide-range of projects, handle different materials, how to use hand and power tools with an emphasis on workshop safety.    

 We want to share the simple joy and satisfaction that comes from building something with your own hands. We take the mystery out of handiwork, we are here to empower our students with skills, a rationale and the tenacity to tackle projects with confidence.
