Woodworking Students at the Hop

Woodworking Workshop

The Woodworking shop operates in a "makerspace" style format and is mentored by professional woodworkers. It's an open studio for all Dartmouth students that is a very well-equipped woodworking space and includes a wide range of materials for sale to students. 

While the Hop is undergoing renovations, the Woodshop will be located in a modular building on the Maffei Plaza between the Hop and the Black Family Visual Arts Center. 

No experience is necessary! Sign up for a woodshop orientation. Attendance at one orientation session will provide an introduction to the safe use of major power tools and will certify students to use the Woodworking Shop. If you were certified in the old shop you are all set to come and use the new one.

The Woodshop is a place where all students are encouraged and welcomed to explore their ideas and turn ideas into reality.  

The Woodworking program is not affiliated with any one academic program but rather serves Dartmouth College as a whole. The Woodshop has strong partnerships across campus and each term is involved in lectures, demonstrations and assists with assignments in various academic programs.
