Have you always wanted to try your hand at woodworking but never got around to it? In this beginner-friendly class, you'll learn to build your own self-powered ride — an old school, hardwood pintail longboard!

Guided by an expert local crafter, this workshop is an excellent exercise in the core woodworking skills. From planing and cutting to smoothing a rough piece of hardwood and attaching your rolling stock, you'll get the chance to get hands-on with every stage of the creative process so you can ride off in style!

Your teacher will be on hand with helpful demonstrations as you choose between oak, maple, or walnut for your deck material and pick out your favorite wheel color to create a beautiful board that perfectly matches your style.

At the end of this craft class, you'll have all the skills you need to tackle your future DIY wood projects and a unique longboard to ride down the streets of New York City!

It’s our business to bring people together to make things and use tools that most New Yorker’s couldn’t and wouldn’t use in their homes. This is really difficult to do via Zoom. Gathering people in our post-COVID world requires that we take our guests’ safety even more seriously by implementing every possible precaution. To ensure your safety while at a at Craftsman Ave workshop, we’ve implemented the following precautions:

Small Class Sizes – We’ve always specialized in offering hands-on workshops for small groups of people. In the past, we limited our workshops to 8 guests. For the foreseeable future, we’ll be further limiting our workshops to 4-5 people max so everyone can be safely distanced from each other.

Last-Minute Rescheduling – If a guest doesn’t feel well on the day of their workshop, they can reschedule to a later date at no cost.

Studio Cleaning – With all the wood and metal dust kicked-up in our workshops, there are some areas of our studio that will always appear a little short of “clean”. However, you can be sure that we disinfect all tools and surfaces regularly and especially before each workshop begins.

Mask-Up! – Everyone – guests and instructors – must wear a mask, at least upon entering our studio. BYOM or we’ll be happy to provide you with one. After you arrive, we'll talk about everyone's vaccination status. Masks will only be removed if everyone present is vaccinated AND comfortable with proceeding without masks - otherwise we'll remain masked throughout the workshop. We will also have plenty of gloves available.

Hand Washing/Sanitizing – You’ll find plenty of hand sanitizer dispensers throughout our space and everyone will be asked to clean their hands before each workshop.

Upgraded Ventilation – We’ve upgraded the air handling systems in our studio, effectively doubling the airflow through our space. If any icky things make it into the studio air, they’ll be quickly whisked out by our exhaust system.

We transform "regular folks" into welders, woodworkers, welders, jewelry makers, leather crafters, knife forgers, and stained glass artisans in just one workshop. Our hands-on workshops are taught by local makers, artists & designers in Brooklyn.
Locally owned and operated since 2015, Craftsman Ave is a destination to connect people who want to learn how to do new things with a skilled and likable craftsman who can show them how to do those things in a straight forward, fun, and non-condescending manner. You can make cool stuff while supporting the makers and artists of NYC who we hire to lead our workshops.
