Who: Garrett Hack
What: "My Work and Life in Furniture"
When: Friday, September 14 7:00PMFurniture maker, woodworking educator, author, contributing editor for Fine Woodworking Magazine, and farmer.
Garrett Hack’s earliest memories were of sawing and hammering, so naturally after pursuing civil engineering and architecture at Princeton over forty years ago he became a furniture maker. Later study at Boston University’s Program in Artisanry influenced his style of contemporary designs based on classic forms. Internationally known, his work and Federal-inspired brick shop have been featured in The New York Times,Preservation, Home Furniture, New Hampshire Home, and Fine Woodworking, where he is a contributing editor and regular writer about design and craftsmanship.
Fundamental to Garrett’s work are hand tools, for the polish of surfaces they cut and the subtle variations possible working by hand and eye rather than machine. He teaches classes throughout the country, and in Canada, Germany, England, Italy, Spain, Austria, Australia, and Japan. He is former chairman of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters and has written The Handplane Book and Classic Hand Tools (Taunton Press, 1997, 1999).We will spend an interesting, enlightening and pleasant evening with Garrett exploring his work and approach to design and furniture creation.
