Greenwood Chairmaking — FOREST/BODY/CHAIR

May 5 - May 10

Join the Marlboro Studio School from May 5-10 for a fully immersive, uninterrupted learning experience in beautiful Marlboro, VT.

FOREST/BODY/CHAIR links the practice of greenwood chairmaking to forest ecology, climate change, human embodiment, and interspecies relationships. The workshop is centered on the process of constructing a simple greenwood chair, beginning with a log and working with hand tools. This process happens in conjunction with exploration and study of the forests of the Marlboro campus, and a focus on chair design and construction for the human body. We will integrate an exploration of natural history, embodiment, and dendrology with the practice of woodworking, in consideration of the life of the tree as an integral part of the woodworking process.

Led by Gina Siepel, an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and woodworker based in Greenfield MA.

FOREST/BODY/CHAIR Workshop is open to artists of all abilities.
