    This was an excellent way for kids for tacit learning and imagination. On the 1st lesson, each kid got a personal tool box with hammer, special carpenter’s rulers, saw etc. The kids learnt to design and make a box that looks a raw and ordinary rectangular box but it requires consistent and careful handling. The 2nd day is free form – airplanes, boats, bookend, doll House, train set were the different end products by the kids in the class. Full supervision and guidance from the staff as the kids saw, drill, sand, nail wood and use the electrical machinery. On the 3rd day, each kid made a stool, also up to each individual’s creativity. As a parents, I was assured abt the safety of the kids and at the same time, sophistication. I saw a boy of perhaps upper primary school age who was so fine and detailed about his creation. The class allowed him to take the time to patiently and slowly get that woodcraft to its seamless perfection. For others not so fine and detailed, they felt good that they could turn wood blocks into functional pieces to be used at home.
