Description: This class will be held outside over two consecutive Saturdays. It will center mostly around the use of hand tools, with some power tools employed to finish projects. We will be using different types of wood and traditional techniques and styles to create a classic three-legged stool. Each student will leave with a fully functional stool and the skills to make more in the future.
This class is specifically designed to accommodate and welcome people with a range of neurodiversities including ASD, ADHD, and other types of thinking across the spectrum. The instructor himself is neurodivergent, and wishes to create a communally supportive class for his students. Students may contact the instructor beforehand to discuss ways to best facilitate their learning experience.

About the instructor: Palo Coleman grew up unfettered in Northern California where he spent a lot of time in the woods taught himself building skills and developed an interest in small-scale living. Now living with his wife and family in Cambridge, he continues to experiment in myriad woodworking techniques and is a tiny-house builder. Recent projects include a living playground in Waitsfield, Vermont’s elementary school; making a vertical garden system; constructing medieval games for the Fuller Craft Museum; and developing a portable studio with Japanese-wood siding.
