Summer Workshops

2021 Workshops

We are proceeding with Summer Classes this year. We will maintain all Covid protocols: social distancing, masks, and good ventilation. Social distancing dictates there will be a maximum of 12 students in the class. Masks must be worn at all times in the building. Doors and windows will be open throughout the day.

Tools and Techniques with Jim Budlong

(WOD-70A INTRODUCTION TO WOODWORKING)          June 7 – June 25

Small Project Class with Jim Budlong


Carving with Paul Reiber($466)                                                 July 19 – July 23

Both WOD70A and WOD70B are 3 units each. For accurate costs information, go to Mendocino College’s (they are our administrators) site under the Admissions section. The carving class is offered through the Mendocino College Community Extension department and is not for credit. To register for Carving go here for information:

In addition to course fees, an additional materials fee may be charged for each course, to cover costs of exercise materials (poplar, maple, etc), glue, shellac, and other consumables. (Typically this is in the order of $40.)

Specifically for the Tools and Techniques Course, you will also be required to purchase 2 Hock plane irons totaling $100, if you do not bring them yourself.

For the Small Project class you will be expected to purchase your own project materials (wood, hardware and finish).

Be aware the out of state students are required to pay both the enrollment fees and the non resident tuition. To be certain of the total cost, please contact the Admissions office directly at
The Krenov Foundation has two scholarships of $3000 each available for BIPOC applicants. More details here.
If you are plan to take WOD-70B (Small Project), it is required that you have first completed WOD-70A (Tools and Techniques). People have requested before that they would like to skip that class, but we have found that does not work well for the student nor us. Many of you may have taken T&T with us while we were with College of the Redwoods. If so, you will need to fill out a Prerequisite Challenge Form, and provide some proof that you took the class. (We can help vouch for you if you do not have any receipts or documentation.) This may seem a bit cumbersome, but this is the price for now having the class be for credit and much less expensive.
In order to register for these classes you must first become a student of Mendocino College. Please go to and follow their instructions. Once you are a student, you can then sign up for these courses.

Our summer courses will be listed in the Summer 2021 class schedule under Coast Center.

If you have any trouble registering please contact the admissions office at  or 707-468-3101.

The registration for Summer classes opens mid to late April for online registration and for in person. Go to  to confirm this. Registration is first come first served.

We recommend that you get yourself admitted as a student as early as possible so that registration goes smoothly. These classes tend to fill quickly.

At this time, Mendocino College is not able to issue I-20 visas to a students wishing to participate solely in the summer workshops. However international students that are already in country may be eligible to enroll in the course(s). Please contact Anastasia Simpson-Logg at or 707-468-3102 if you have questions regarding eligibility.

By offering the classes for credit, the cost has come way down for residents of California, but you will be limited in how many times you may take each class. Remember, the workshops can fill early, so register early to secure a spot!
