Upcoming Events

Who: Om Anand
What: Design Perspectives
Where: Cotati Cottages
When: Tuesday,  May 2, 2017, 7pm

Our meeting this month, on Tuesday, May 2, at 7pm, will feature a presentation by Om Anand, a cabinetmaker from Santa Cruz who describes himself as “neo Arts and Crafts.” A student at the College of the Redwoods in 1986-87, he credits James Krenov with helping him to learn to see, in terms of shape, of weight, of line. Om plans to discuss his personal approach to design, and how a person might develop his/her own style, with some examples from his own bench. Bring your questions and prepare for a lively discussion.  
See a Santa Cruz Sentinel article featuring Om here.  And his website here.


Here is how to get to our venue,  Cotati Cottages:  Take 101 north and get off at exit 481B, and swing left underneath the Freeway.  You will be headed westward.  Go straight ahead through two lights.

Head west in the direction of Sebastopol about ΒΌ mile to Alder Avenue.  Careful, it comes up quick and is the first right after you leave the traffic lights. It can be a bit hard to see in the dark.  Turn right on Alder and then turn right on the first street which is Ford Lane (Cotati Cottages sign). Proceed to the end of Ford Lane and park in the gravel parking spaces. The Clubhouse is the small building on the northeast corner of Ford Lane and Starr Court. There is limited parking near the clubhouse. If the gravel parking area is full, please park on the east side of Alder Avenue. The address is 8050 Starr Court, should you need it for a GPS.
