Our School is named for Wayne C. Henderson, a world renowned guitar instrumentalist and luthier from nearby Rugby, Virginia who has become an international ambassador for the music, heritage, and culture of our region of the Southern Appalachians.

Our wood shop and finishing room are a wonderful testament to our commitment to craft. We have volunteers to help in the shop, and can always use a few more!

To use the shop you will be required to take a safety class regarding equipment and proper procedures, just as in Letterpress, you can rent the shop for the day or longer if there is a specific project you want to work on, or need some help or specific equipment to perform a certain task.

If you would be interested in conducting a workshop or a class, please let us know!
