About the Venue
The Chicago School of Woodworking was established in 2007 to train students in the art of furniture making. In December 2015, the school moved into its current 13,500 square foot facility, located in Chicago's Norwood Park neighborhood on the Northwest side of the city. The facility has two bench rooms, two machine rooms and a library/classroom available to students.
