We are delighted to announce that internationally-renown furniture designer Michael Fortune will conduct our first Artist in Residence program, starting in January 2022. Michael will spend four weeks creating one or more new projects at the school and will also mentor up to eight woodworkers who will join him in working on their own designs. Michael is excited to both tutor other participants and to make the most of his own chance to work freely on projects that are not client commissions.
This is a rare opportunity to work alongside one of North America’s most respected and creative contemporary masters of the craft. Michael is justly acknowledged as a world-class artist not only for his stunning designs, but also for his incredible teaching skills and technical expertise.
