"The way we spend our time is the way we spend our lives"
We want to share the simple joy of working with your hands.
At the DUMBO WORKSHOP we offer a straightforward, project based curriculum designed to teach you the fundamentals of working with your hands and using tools safely and sensibly.
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. DUMBO WORKSHOP is here to empower our students with skills, rationale and the tenacity to tackle projects with confidence.
"I went to Jon at Dumbo Workshop to help me make a cutting board. My wife had given me a gift certificate. I wanted something elegant looking that I could use regularly for a long period of time. Jon didn't just teach me to make a cutting board, he walked me through the entire process of planing, material acquisition, execution, and even managing caveats. The final product was a gorgeous piece of woodworking and a set of skills that I later re-purposed to make a similar project by myself later on. I took the skills he taught me and applied them to a serving tray that I gifted to back to my wife. The new piece came out beautifully and I was even more impressed by how much of Jon's teaching stayed with me. I would recommend the Dumbo Workshop to anyone considering it. Jon does an incredible job of balancing your independence with his extremely capable ability to teach. "
