Shop Class History

It takes time to get to know your neighbors. How long have we been on the block?

Community Shop Class has been located on Stockton Blvd since 2021 but was reborn as a not-for-profit neighborhood learning center in August of 2022.

Since then, we have been providing the citizens of Oak Park with tools, classes, events, and opportunities to enter the trades with hands-on experience.

 

Shop Class Origins

Community Shop Class, first called Neighborhood Wood Goods, was originally conceived in founder Chad Orcutt’s garage.

The concept was simple: to open his workshop and share his skillset with his neighbors. From this dream, Chad expanded and moved his business to Stockton Blvd, and Neighborhood Wood Goods became Community Shop Class.
