Final Days of the Summer Twelve-week Intensive

Written by Michaela Stone on .

The end of the summer Twelve-week Furniture Intensive is always a little bittersweet. The sun sets a little earlier, nights are a little cooler, and we have to say goodbye to an incredibly hard-working and creative group of students. It's so exciting, though, to see what those students have created in their time here at school, and to hear what they have planned for the future. Some will return to their pre-woodworking lives, but with a new-found passion and deep knowledge of their hobby; others will take the plunge and open their own shops, making furniture full-time; and some will continue their education in woodworking in a number of ways, including our Nine-month Comprehensive.

The final four weeks of the Furniture Intensive are spent learning to create and incorporate curvature and veneer in furniture. This summer, Adrian Ferrazzutti joined lead instructor Aaron Fedarko for the curves segment. Adrian has an astounding ability to energize an entire class of students, right when they're starting to lose steam after months of hard work. Somehow, when he's on campus, the work ethic goes up and smiles get bigger.

Sarah Marriage, one of our current Studio Fellows, has been awarded the prestigious John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship from the Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston. Sarah plans to use the grant toward opening a group shop for women in woodworking. As part of the award, her work is being featured in a show at the SAC's gallery called Stay in Touch: Seven Years of the John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship. Work from all seven Mineck award winners will be on display, including that of former Center for Furniture Craftsmanship student and faculty member, Libby Schrum. See more of Sarah's work HERE, and learn more about the Mineck award HERE.

Congratulations, Sarah!

Precision with Hand Tools with Garrett Hack

One of our popular summer workshops is the Precision with Hand Tools course taught by Garrett Hack. Through making a small end table, students gain a deep understanding of how to use and fine-tune hand tools for precise, high-quality work. Working efficiently with hand tools instead of machines requires patience and hard work, but can also be a far more pleasant experience for a woodworker, and it imbues a piece with the subtle nuance of the hand of the maker. I'm always impressed by how much students in this class learn and create in just one week.

Current Work in the Studio Fellowship

Incredible things are happening in the Studio Fellowship building these days. The creativity, skill, and work ethic of the five fellows is unparalleled, and they raise the energy level throughout campus with their inspiring work. While their personalities meld together harmoniously, the work they produce has impressive range. From sleek utilitarian functionality, to sculptural studies in form, to conceptual explorations, this group of woodworkers is a fantastic example of how boundless the future of furniture design will be.

2015 Open House

Written by Michaela Stone on .

 

At this year's Annual Open House, as guests started to arrive, the walkway became speckled with a polka dot pattern of raindrops. Up above, a single ominous cloud hovered in what was otherwise a bright and sunny sky. Just when the frustrating thought of moving everything inside crept into the minds of the staff, the cloud floated away just as inconspicuously as it had approached. It was a huge relief; although, to be fair, rain hasn't stopped us from having a blast before.

Each year at the end of June members of our local community are invited to our biggest party. With food and drink in hand, guests perused the New Work by Faculty exhibit in the Messler Gallery, as well as the many works in progress by current students and studio fellows throughout campus.

Progress in the Twelve-week Turning course

Written by Michaela Stone on .

The Twelve-week Turning Intensive students have been putting a myriad of techniques to work, producing stacks of bowls, spindles, carvings, vessels, and sculptures. Now entering the tenth week, individual styles and creative voices are beginning to emerge. Last week, industrial designer Dino Sanchez worked with the students individually to discuss the importance of marketing and product development. Dino quickly distinguished himself as an asset to the course by helping students recognize what makes their work uniquely special.

Winter Potluck

Written by Michaela Stone on .

The Twelve-week Turning Intensive students recently learned to turn bowls using wet wood. Unlike kiln dried wood, which produces flaky chips when turned, wet wood releases long, aromatic ribbons as it's cut into. With turning instructor Beth Ireland around, wet bowl turning means one thing: time to fire up the smoker. The bowl shavings are perfect for smoking meat, and from what I can tell, Beth's meat-smoking skill rivals that of her turning. She and her students invited the rest of campus over to the turning studio to indulge. The impromptu potluck was exactly what we all needed to get our minds off the cold - but beautiful - winter.
