University of the Arts students join us for our Second Sunday event! Green wood chair construction, popularized by the book, “Make a Chair from a Tree”, by John D. Alexander Jr. in the seventies, has been a popular method of making chairs for generations. Using nothing but a shaving horse, simple hand tools and the inherent properties of the wood, students from UArts will join us at the Museum to demonstrate how to turn a log into and beautiful chair.
The demonstration will take place outside, while inside the Studio our Second Sunday event will take place as usual. Second Sunday is our self-directed tour experience, where you are free to move through the Studio at your own pace with docents in every room to answer questions and demonstrate the furniture. This experience allows you to spend as much time as you like and doesn’t require reservations- however, don’t come too late because the Museum closes at 4:00 pm.
Admission $12 adult / $6 children (ages 5-12)
