Event Overview

Learn how to make the Chicago skyline out of reclaimed barn wood.  We will start in the expansive Swoon Living workshop, where you will pick out your own unique skyline that you will be able to finish and bring home with you!  We will then move into the wood shop where under the guidance of our experienced staff you will execute all of the primary steps to creating the skylines.  You will have the opportunity to use the table saw, taking unique pieces of wood and cutting them into individual slats.  We will show you how to assemble these slats and run them through the planer, creating a level base that will then be cut to shape in the laser cutter.  We will finish by adding a wooden base and hardware to your piece, so it is ready to show off in your own home.

Dabble me this, Dabble me that what can be learned from Paddy Fitz Pat? All sorts of neat little crafty tid bits will be shared. With the power of the plastic cards many cool and unique pieces of equipment have been purchased and now all we need is an audience to teach. So leave the kids at home, put on your safety goggles and let's get messy. If you don't get any on you then you're just not having any fun.
(Always keep hair tied back and no loose fitting clothes or open toed shoes.)

    Utilize the drone video to find your way into the shop, it was super helpful! Free street parking right outside the building. Class was very fun and a great learning experience. Only downfall is that you do not get to take home the same skyline that you design due to laser cutting taking 45 mins per piece. You get to take home one that had already been pre-made.
