Upcoming Workshops

As we wind down for the year, we wanted to make sure you knew about the final few workshops we have scheduled in 2018!

Handcrafted Chairs: A Hybrid Approach of Traditional and Modern Techniques
Presented by Chris Desautels
December 8 | 3pm-4pm

Chris Desautels is a University Park resident whose day job is building and maintaining web applications for the Federal Government. But when he’s not pushing electrons around he likes to work with his hands, building furniture in his small but well-equipped workshop. As of late, he has been focusing on building chairs, using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. Join him for a discussion and presentation of the various skills, techniques and tools involved, and his thoughts on traditional versus modern techniques. He will also be showing a few of his recent creations.
