Join us for a conversation with Los Angeles-based artist and woodworker Sarah Watlington! We’ll talk with Sarah about the varied sources of inspiration she draws on in her studio, from the grace of animal forms to literature and the written word, highlighting parallels with Esherick’s own practice. We’ll also delve into Sarah’s unique approach to design and her ideas on simplicity — and just how complex it can be.
Sarah Watlington is a graduate of the Krenov School of Fine Woodworking in Ft. Bragg, CA and holds a BFA in Design from the Design Institute of San Diego. She is the Project Manager at Offerman Woodshop in Los Angeles where she designs and builds custom furniture. She teaches woodworking at Allied Woodshop. Sarah is looking forward to her fellowship at the Center for Art in Wood’s ITE Windgate Residency in Philadelphia in the summer of 2021. Explore more of Sarah’s work here.
