Properly sharpened tools are essential to a project’s success. There are lots of ways to make dull things sharp. This class will explore what sharp means and what tools can be used to get there. We will use everything from the simplest tools (the bottom of a coffee cup!) to power tools available at COG. There will be plenty of time for hands-on work and students will be encouraged to bring things to the class to get sharpened.

No previous experience necessary. Participants must be 18 or older.

Registration fee: $35 COG Members | $45 Non-Members

To keep our classes affordable, we book our instructors and purchase materials in advance. We depend on advanced registration. Classes without sufficient advanced enrollment may be canceled. Advanced registration closes 3 business days before the class date. Reservations made after this date will be subject to a $10 late registration fee. Cancellations must be made one week before the class date in order to be eligible for a refund, unless due to illness. 

Please note, if you are showing signs of COVID related symptoms and cannot attend your class, you have the option to request a full refund up to 1 week before your class begins. After this point, students experiencing symptoms may request a full class credit up to the morning of the class. 

COVID-19 Safety: TVCOG is committed to ensuring the safety of its members, instructors and guests and as such, has set certain COVID-19 safety precautions in place which follow NYS and CDC guidance. You will be asked to complete a COVID waiver, sign a COVID Safety Pledge and provide contact tracing information during the registration process. Everyone is expected to maintain social distance (6′) from individuals outside of their own group while in the facility; this class size has been limited to 6 participants in order to ensure adequate social distancing. All shared tools/equipment will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after each class. Masks are required  for everyone in the facility, regardless of vaccination status.
