Join us for an author's talk and book signing with furniture maker Peter Korn, Executive Director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship and author of Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman. Korn will discuss the nature and rewards of creative work, and how the practice of craft can be transformational for the individual and society. Korn draws on four decades of hands-on experience to answer these questions eloquently, and often poignantly.
Peter Korn is the founder and Executive Director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, a non-profit woodworking and design school in Rockport, Maine. His other how-to books are the best-selling Woodworking Basics: Mastering the Essentials of Craftsmanship (Taunton Press, 2003) and The Woodworker's Guide to Hand Tools (Taunton Press, 1998).
