In a time when technological advances have us juggling ever-smaller devices that promise better, more connected lives, and ordering goods from halfway around the globe, Handmade | Mindmade is a rare opportunity. This exhibition features more than 40 handcrafted wood furniture pieces made by graduates of the internationally renowned College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program, founded by James Krenov in 1981. Students invest uncounted hours in perfecting works that will last generations, and are educated both with technique, and an acute sensitivity to tools and materials, craft and personal expression.
Come and talk with the makers about their pieces, about their experience of learning a high level of craftsmanship, and about their plans for the future.
The exhibition and programming is supported by The Krenov Foundation.
