April 5 & 62024

The Furni­ture Society is excited to announce our first regional event of the year taking place in Doylestown, PA — April 56!

We hope you will be able to join us for a fun and educa­tional expe­ri­ence which will give our members and commu­nity the oppor­tu­nity to get to know one another, learn about each other’s studio prac­tices and artwork, strike up mean­ing­ful conver­sa­tions, and learn about local history through docent-led museum tours.

This event has passed. Stay tuned for more FS events around the country
