In Memory of Richard Bergen

Richard BergenIt is with great sadness that I tell you Richard Bergen lost his courageous battle with Leukemia on Thursday, April 9, 2020. He was a close personal friend for over 20 years and a huge asset in the school. Richard took dozens and dozens of classes over the years and assisted in most of the beginning classes for many years. Every studio photograph of the school furniture projects was done by Richard- free of charge!

Richard never hesitated to jump in and help out any time we needed it and was a huge help to hundreds of students..

He will be sorely missed.

Build Two “Rafter Tail” Tables with Darrell Peart

Darrell Peart Rafter Tail coffee table 640Join nationally known furniture maker and designer, Darrell Peart as we journey into the world of the Greene & Greene brothers.

Daryl’s “Rafter Tail” Tables combine classic Greene & Greene features along with an extra measure of Asian influences. They would be well placed in a contemporary setting just as well as in an Arts & Crafts environment.

In this unique five-day class, students will build two mahogany (or sapelle) rafter tail tables. You can choose top build one end table and one coffee table, or both can be coffee tables or both can be end tables. Wooden tops will be made in class but the design lends itself nicely to tops of other materials such as glass or slate. Check Daryl’s website for some of the variations he has made on the basic design. (Note- only wood tops will be provided in the class.)   Darrell Peart Rafter Tail detail 640

Although the parts for the 2nd table should be cut out and ready to assemble – it is likely to not be finished in class.

This is a truly unique project and Darrell Peart is one of this county’s leading furniture designers and is an authority on Greene & Greene furniture styles. Sign up today– space is limited and this class will sell out soon.

Tuition: $795.00 plus materials
