“______” in a day
On January 28, 2022, students from all four of our craft disciplines worked to create something extra special in just one day and you can take some of these creations home in our first ever sealed bid auction (ends April 4, 4:00 P.M. EST).
Scenes From That Day
The inspiration for this undertaking came to Rob from the Penland School of Craft where a “Table in a day” challenge began in the woodshop during winter residencies in 2015. Since then, Penland has made this an annual event and the challenge has spread to other schools and shops across the country.
The results of Berea’s contribution to this wonderful project can be seen below along with some photos of scenes from that day. It is important to note that everything wasn’t 100% complete at the end of the day on the 28th , but as intended by the folks at Penland all the design work and most of the making was complete at the end of that exhilarating and exhausting January day. Final oiling and lacquering of the wooden table, binding of placemats, final tweaks to the broom contributions, and firing of the ceramics piece carried over but we think you will agree that the results have been worth the extra days.
