About the instructor
Benita has been making projects out of wood since she was a kid playing in her dad’s basement workshop.  Since then she’s continued making things from all sorts of materials and has developed a love of crafting with tools through occupations like working as an arborist and as a bicycle mechanic and working on natural building and conventional construction projects.  When she got involved at The Unplugged Woodshop to study in the Artisan Program, the pace and the beauty of hand tool woodworking really resonated with her, and feels very lucky to get to learn, work and teach in this shop.
