Enjoy a self-driven tour of Modern Craft Sites beginning with the studio of revered woodworker Wharton Esherick, called the “dean of American craftmen,” for his leadership in developing non-traditional designs, that also includes a workshop designed by his friend Louis Kahn – a building still not open to the public. Then travel to New Hope and the wonderous compound of master-craftman George Nakashima with a personal tour by Mira Nakashima, now its director.
Tour participants must provide their own transportation to the sites. or carpool. The visits will all be guided.
Note: A light breakfast will be provided at the Wharton Esherick Studio and lunch will be provided at George Nakashima Woodworkers.
