Rare opportunity to work alongside and learn from one of North America’s most esteemed and creative contemporary furniture masters.
Michael Fortune is a regular tutor at the Centre for Fine Woodworking in New Zealand, and we are offering an exciting opportunity to those who would like to spend six weeks of uninterrupted time dedicated to creating their own new design or concept, working alongside Michael in a highly motivated, encouraging and open studio environment.
Participants will need to be self-directed with sufficient skills and experience to work independently on their chosen project which will be completed within the six week period.
Michael will be creating a piece of his own work and will be available for mentoring, guidance, consultation and tutorship at specific times each day. This is a rare opportunity to work alongside and learn from one of North America’s most esteemed and creative contemporary furniture masters.
Michael is highly respected and acknowledged not only as a world class teacher and mentor, but also for his design and technical expertise.
