This is a great class to take especially if you are interested in joinery. I learned how to do mortise and tenon as well as lap joints. Steve is a great instructor who really knows what he is doing and ensures the safety of all students. The teaching assistant, Mario, was also super helpful especially when it came to the glue up process where he's really knowledgeable on clamping techniques. Despite the class being quite large, Steve and Mario took the time to help students if they wanted to modify their projects. As a returning student, it was nice to see other returning students who I knew by name as it felt very community oriented. I would recommend taking the side table class prior to this class as it helps with a stronger foundation. I would also recommend investing in the tools that are recommended in the course description especially if you want to continue to take more classes. Overall it was an very informative foundation class and I will definitely be returning to FIT for more classes.

There should have been a lot more structure. Steven clearly knows his stuff but seemed stressed about the class size which slowly dwindled after a few weeks. Here are my suggestions: 1. Be very clear about the Goals of the course (eg we plan on making a modern chair. In this course our aims are etc etc.) 2. Introduce yourself clearly and also make everyone else go around the room introducing themselves. After 6/7 weeks I had no idea what anyone was called. Sure, it is not necessary for the class but it is a basic social skill. 3. His assistant Mario was very quiet and it wasn't clear that he was confident with English which is fine but Steven should have directed him more and he would have been more useful. He seemed to know his stuff and was a really nice guy. 4. Don't have favorites. Steven called some people by their first names and ignored others. This is unacceptable for a teacher and can breed resentment. If you don't feel comfortable pronouncing someones name why don't you ask them! 5. There was inadequate instruction around the table saw. This is a highly dangerous tool and he should never be in the other room while a complete novice is operating it. It literally only takes a second.. 6. There was a complete disconnect about what tools were required for the course. He should have spent some time on this. He didn't seem to be aware of what was needed or what was recommended.. He has the potential to be a great teacher as he is clearly very skilled. I think he should have shown some of his work as this would have been inspirational to the students. Someone needs to sit in the class, observe and give formal feedback. Sadly, I won't be returning and can't recommend the course to others in its current format.

This is my second time taking this course and it still had a lot to offer. Steven Broadway creates a creative environment that makes learning technique less intimidating.

I took fashion drawing just to have some fun, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved being in Prof. Broadway’s class and will probably take the course with him again.
