“I began volunteering with the Furniture Society in 2017 after my daughter was born. Former Executive Director Brigitte Martin placed an open call for volunteers to join the Communications team, and it seemed like a great way to stay connected with the furniture making community while I was on a hiatus from the workshop. It’s been exciting to watch the Furniture Society grow through new initiatives such as FS Connects and Craft For A Greater Good, and I’m honored to be able to share these initiatives and promote the work of our incredible members. Being involved with such an inspiring organization representing a diverse group of makers has been a rewarding experience, and I’m proud to work with so many wonderful people.”
“I was approached by a mentor who encouraged me to get involved with the Furniture Society. Community is something that is incredibly important to me and is really the fuel to my fire when it comes to creating work. Getting involved with the Furniture Society made a lot of sense in terms of wanting to meet and be connected to others who are passionate about the same things as I. I had no idea though the amount of support and upliftment I’d eventually gain from being a part of this community. I enjoy volunteering for FS because it gives me the opportunity to facilitate other’s experiences and hopefully help them find a place that feels welcoming and contributory to their personal practices.”
