Shaker Design: Simplicity, Utility, and Harmony


Wednesday, Oct 27 1:00 – 2:00

This virtual conver­sa­tion and studio visit will explore the history and ongoing legacy of Shaker design. Curator Sarah Margo­lis-Pineo will present an overview of Shaker mate­r­ial culture, high­light­ing a selec­tion of iconic 19th-century works of Shaker furni­ture. To bring this history forward, master wood­worker and author C.H. Becksvoort will take us through into his studio and show­room to discuss the ways he engages the design and crafts­man­ship of Shaker furniture today.
