GROWTH RINGS:
A RETROSPECTIVE OF COLLEGE OF THE REDWOODS FINE WOODWORKING PROGRAM GRADUATES

June 7 through August 17, 2014

The College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program in Fort Bragg, California, 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.

The Grace Hudson Museum presented “Growth Rings,” an invitational and juried exhibition to feature pieces from College of the Redwoods Program graduates currently living and working within the Redwood Empire region.
