During this class, you will build a sturdy, collapsible clothes drying rack from scratch.
This rack can really help save on energy costs in the winter when outdoor clotheslines are impractical – especially if you have an indoor wood stove. All of the necessary components will be provided to you to build one drying rack which holds about a half of a large load of laundry. In addition, you will go home with a set of instructions so that you can teach others how to build their own rack too. The final unfolded rack size is approximately 4ft long by 18″ wide by 4ft tall – this rack folds down to 4ft long by 2ft wide by 8″ tall.
During the class, the instructor will walk you through the steps with hands on demonstrations, answer any questions you may have, and show you some tricks along the way. You will do most of the building yourself unless you need assistance.
Instruction and all materials. By the end of class, you’ll go home with your own, completely assembled drying rack. You’ll also leave with the knowledge and the skills to make your own (but we’ll also send you home with some instructions)!
No special skills or ability required.
