Please join us on Tuesday October 3rd, 2017 for a presentation by Thomas Fetherson entitled "Modern Design and Craftsmanship".


THOMAS FETHERSTON - 39 years and counting. Thomas’s love for craft and design began with a five year apprenticeship restoring fine period antiques in the New York area while attending the Parsons School of Design. Since opening his San Francisco studio in 1978, every project his studio has created has been made to order and client specific, no two designs the same. Mr. Fetherston brings his vast experience of furniture history, engineering and fabrication to each and every project. Practicing the age old craft of fine furniture making, his studio has earned a reputation for exceptional workmanship, attention to detail and client satisfaction.

On October 3rd, Thomas will talk about the marketing of his craft, and what it takes to produce fine furniture over a long period of time.  We will see inside his design process and how it ends up with a fine piece of furniture.  Please come join us for what will certainly be an informative and interesting evening.


Here is how to get to our venue,  180 STUDIOS:  Address is 150 Todd Road, Santa Rosa (on South side of Todd).
