Rules & Procedures:

All Richland Library cardholders interested in using the Woodshop will need to attend two orientation workshops.
Woodworking orientations start with a 30-45 minute meeting where the instructor shows you the shop and reviews policies and procedures for the space. You will discuss your past experience in woodworking and how you plan to use the space. At the end of the meeting, a 2-3 hour hands-on-orientation will be scheduled during which time you will work on a project of your choice. A waiver will be signed at this time. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled before an individual is approved access to particular pieces of equipment. The orientation process takes into account skill level and aptitude; the process may take less time for those with prior experience. *library card required
To schedule an orientation, please e-mail JMorris@richlandlibrary.com. Please note, wait times for orientations vary from one to three weeks depending on availability.
The Workshop is open and available to those who have gone through an orientation unless there is a program or one-on-one appointment in progress. Customers are welcome to e-mail Jordan Morris to inquire about studio availability.
If you have a woodworking project for which you would like assistance or advice, e-mail JMorris@richlandlibrary.com to book an appointment.
Meet the Instructor:
Jordan Morris has been a maker most of her life. Being the youngest of three girls you’ve got to be a little innovative with all those hand-me-downs. At one year old Jordan was dragged by her family across the Atlantic Ocean to live in Surrey (that’s where Harry Potter is from!) for about three years. Elementary and middle school consisted of macaroni ornaments and sugar cube igloos, but it wasn’t until she met an inspiring high school art teacher – who also happened to be a Baptist pastor – that her over-achieving personality was empowered to take flight. That journey continued in college at the department of Fine Art at the University of South Carolina, where she majored in ceramics and graduated in sculpture. Jordan’s experiences took her to museums, tech startups and teaching, but nothing quite felt like home until landing at Richland Library.
