Peralta News – Carpentry at Laney College

27 January 2014

We speak with 2 students, Sophia Gann and Arnold Sloan from Laney College’s Carpentry class about their experiences and the ‘Dandelion Project’.

The Carpentry Department offers students the carpentry skills necessary for careers as carpenters and general contractors. The program is designed for entry level people as well as those already working as carpenters.

Classes are held on campus and at specific work sites off campus. Students gain actual hands-on experience while learning. The Carpentry Department builds new houses and renovates existing homes.

Slated to start a new house in East Oakland next year, they are currently building a small, portable home, the Dandelion.
