A Weekend with Tommy Simpson
The Furniture Society is excited to partner with Peters Valley to bring you this special workshop event.
Saturday & Sunday, October 22 — October 23, 2022
Tommy Simpson in the studio
Join us in celebrating the creative process of Tommy Simpson. In this weekend workshop, Tommy Simpson and Abby Mechanic will be leading participants through an exploratory spoon carving workshop. Participants will be presented with a prompt by Tommy and will react via the spoon carving process. Every hour, participants will swap spoons with a neighbor and will be challenged to make on the fly design decisions. Over the two day period all participants will have had a hand at helping to create a suite of spoons. We will take the time to critique and discuss the collective design decisions and unpack the inspiration behind our decisions. This weekend will be a time to create community within the woodworking field and to reflect on the joys of making!
Tuition: $130 (Additional $30 registration fee for non Peters Valley members)
