A fine furniture show in San Francisco



Opening reception May 22, 6-8PM
Zinc Details - 1633 Fillmore St @ Geary

Come early for a special limited inventory of one-of-a-kind cutting boards and other small gifts for purchase


HANDMADE/MINDMADE is a collective show of new handcrafted furniture from the renowned College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program. Over forty original, studio-quality pieces will be on display for purchase or by commission. This is the only showing outside of Mendocino County, where the school is located, and a unique opportunity to see the year's work gathered in once place.

Founded in 1981 by James Krenov, every year the CR Fine Woodworking Program graduates a small, tight-knit class engaged in the highest level of craftsmanship. The school is known among woodworkers worldwide, yet remains a best-kept secret even within California, thanks in part to a preference for engaging in craft over self-promotion.

At once a diverse and self-selecting group, the students are united by a shared passion for wood and a singular quest for meaning through honest work. For nine months, they share a bench room eight hours a day, six days a week, perfecting their slow craft in this age of fast technology. By all accounts, they emerge from the program transformed.

COLLEGE OF THE REDWOODS
FINE WOODWORKING PROGRAM

Under Lead Instructor Laura Mays along with Jim Budlong, Greg Smith, Ejler Hjorth-Westh, and David Welter, The Nine Month Fine Woodworking Program runs from August to May.

For those who have the interest but limited time, the school offers comprehensive Summer Workshops lasting a few days up to six weeks.

Applications are accepted through the month of March. Visitors are warmly welcome throughout the school year.

 

Stick to what you believe in; go into the work and listen.
Find a pace and a balance that make sense out of long hours.
 

Try to reach the level where there is no competitor except excellence itself.
