Novices can acquire the fundamental skills and knowledge of the craft of woodworking by enrolling in the noncredit “Woodworking 101” course being offered through Workforce Development & Continuing Education at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Classes for the course will meet from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, May 18 to June 3, at the Carl Building Technologies Center on the main campus in Williamsport.
