In addition to the three gateway classes and 11 required classes, the Woodworking Basics Certificate includes an annual individual BARN membership and the opportunity to work 1-on-1 for 18 hours with a woodworking mentor on a project of your choice. This mentorship opportunity is not offered elsewhere in the Woodworking Studio.

If you took the classes a la carte, purchased a BARN membership, and hired a mentor at $40/hour for 18 hours, the cost would be about $500 more than enrolling in the Woodworking Basics Certificate program.
