What is your Covid policy?

COVID policy for indoor classes: 

  • everyone wears masks, regardless of vaccination status

COVID policy for outdoor classes:

  • masking requests will be communicated by the instructor of that course and according to their needs
  • students must be vaccinated OR have received negative COVID test results within 72 hours of class. 

Why masking?

Masks are required for the good health of each individual and the community as a whole. Why? 

  1. Most classes at Fireweed generate considerable amounts of wood dust which is carcinogenic. Masking reduces your exposure to wood dust!
  2. Masking reduces your exposure to airborne pathogens like Covid-19, flu, RSV, and common colds. 

*If you have a medical reason for not wearing a mask, we trust you to make that call for yourself without judgement.

What is your general cancellation policy? If you cancel 21 days or more before the start of the class, you will receive a full refund minus a $5 processing fee. If you cancel less than 21 days prior to the start of the class, you will receive  a shop credit minus a $5 processing fee and the cost of materials for the class. This credit will expire one year from when it is issued. 

What is your weather cancellation policy? Class is on unless you hear from us. We will email you if we have to cancel due to snow. Class will be rescheduled if possible and your seat will transfer over unless you cant make the new date, at which point we will refund you.

How big are your classes? Our classes are capped at 6 to 15 students to ensure students maximize one on one contact with our instructors.

When do you ship your orders? Goods are shipped within 3-5 business days.

What does non-binary mean? Non-binary is a term for folks that are gender fluid and don't align with the male or female gender. People also use the term Gender Non-Conforming (GNC) or Two-Spirited (a Native term) to recognize folks beyond the binary. 

Why do you offer co-ed classes? Co-ed classes are offered because men have different learning styles too. Fireweed Woodshop provides a space where men can learn in a supportive community with no expectations of experience based on gender.

I can’t afford it. Can you help? YES, we access funds available to students. Email us how much you can afford and we will cover the rest if we have the funds. No questions asked. fireweedwoodshop@ gmail.com

How can I get involved? Propose a class. Volunteer. Get in touch. We are growing.

What is safe attire? Closed toed shoes, non-dangling clothing, something you can get dirty.

What is your age minimum? We are 18+ unless noted in our course description. Check out Leonardo's basement for awesome kid classes.

Do you offer private classes? Currently we do not.

How does your pricing work? Most of our instructors are paid an hourly of $40-$50 based on how full class is. We also use a portion of the registration to pay our rent, website hosting fees, tool upkeep, and wages for our staff. The materials fee is based on the cost the instructor creates for prep time and material purchasing.
