A Retrospective of College of the Redwoods
Fine Woodworking Program Graduates
The College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program in Fort Bragg started in 1981 when a group of Mendocino woodworkers persuaded well-known author and studio furniture maker, James Krenov, to teach his methods to students in a nine-month long course. The resulting Fine Woodworking Program has been recognized by the woodworking community around the world for the excellence of its students' work, their craftsmanship, sensitivity, and quality of personal expression. This invitational and juried exhibition features pieces from Program graduates currently living and working within the Redwood Empire region.
