Woodshop FAQ

Is there a woodworking class offered in the School of Art?


The woodshop is a support facility for the Frostic School of Art where students, faculty and staff, who have completed the orientation and training, use the shop to complete coursework and other art-related endeavors.


Currently, there is not a course offered that is specific to woodworking.  


Those interested in learning more about woodworking are invited to participate in the Woodworking Fundamentals program.   This opportunity is only available to Frostic School of Art majors and minors who have completed the woodshop training.

Can any WMU student or staff member work in the woodshop?

Non majors/minors and individuals not affiliated with the Frostic School of Art are not allowed to work in the woodshop.

I took woodshop in High School.  Why do I have to complete the orientation and training?

Given that safety is the highest priority, all students, faculty and staff must complete the orientation and training prior to working in the woodshop regardless of previous experience - no exceptions.

What type of projects can I work on in the woodshop?

The main purpose of the woodshop is to support students and faculty completing course-related work.  Personal projects are allowed and encouraged as long as they are relatively small in scale.  See Brad Smith for more information.

Are materials provided?  Where do I get materials for projects?

In most cases, materials for projects are not provided.  Some materials are provided and included in course fees for some classes.  The woodshop does sell some materials.  

I would like help with a project - how can I get help?

Help is offered on a first come, first served basis during open shop hours.
