Woodworking Instructors Exhibition
March 14, 2014 - July 6, 2014
From March 17 to July 6, visitors have an opportunity to view work made by the faculty of the Arkansas Arts Center Museum School’s Woodworking Department.
The Woodshop, officially known as The Rick Hall Woodworking Studio, has been in existence for many years. The studio makes use of both hand tools and power saws, with safety being a focus of all classes taught. Whether you are brand new to woodworking, or you grew up watching a parent or grandparent make furniture or cabinetry in their shops at home, our woodworking classes offer something for students working at every skill level.
Artwork coming out of the Woodshop ranges in size from handheld pieces as small as wood-turned pens and bowls, to large full-sized bed frames with hand-carved details and coffee tables with intricate glass-inlayed surfaces. What else is made in the Woodshop? Rocking chairs, Adirondack chairs, dining room tables, night stands, sofa tables, wood boxes, jewelry work benches, cabinets, frames, flag display boxes, electric guitars, cutting boards, hand-carved Santa Clauses, and even a coffin! The Woodworking Instructors Exhibition shows the type of work you can make in the Woodshop. Whether it is functional, decorative, and/or fine art, there is something for everyone in the Museum School’s Woodworking Department!
