Our mission is to educate the public in the art of woodworking with a focus on sustainability and community.


At Laguna Institute of Woodworking, nestled in the heart of Laguna Beach, our mission is to empower individuals through the art of woodworking, fostering creativity, sustainability, and community. We believe that woodworking is not just a craft; it’s a powerful medium for personal growth and environmental stewardship. Our nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing accessible and enriching woodworking education, promoting sustainable practices, and creating a vibrant community of artisans. Together, we carve a brighter future for both our members and the planet, one meticulously crafted piece at a time.
