Before the age of 12, children undergo rapid cognitive (intellectual), social, emotional, and physical development. Saltt Workshop aims to engage children in deeper learning with woodworking as our core means of education. Through Woodworking projects, children will embark on a hands-on creative journey to broaden their minds about how things come together. Children are engaged in concept creation, given the opportunity to build with natural material, and be introduced to woodworking tools in a controlled risk environment. The programs are designed to stimulate critical thinking in young minds and provide students with experiences and skills that are useful for everyday life. The program also integrates a sustainability slant in the lessons where children are provided with the experience of making and repairing as opposed to our prevailing culture of consuming and disposing.
