Blind Woodworker Teaches the Visually Impaired
visually impairedMaster woodworker, George Wurtzel, doesn’t let vision loss stand in between him and his passion. Wurtzel teaches woodworking classes to the visually impaired at the Enchanted Hills Camp, which is now owned by the Lighthouse Center for the Blind. At the Napa workshop, you will find both sighted and blind instructors.


“The only thing I always tell people that I teach is just how to feel confident with yourself,” he says. “Your eyeballs don’t run a saw...Your brain does all those things.”

Are you struggling with vision loss? SDCB can help you improve your quality of life.
