Join us on Wednesday, March 19th from 6pm to 7:30pm for a DESIGN: Open House discussion with Edward Gordon, shoji screen maker and woodworker here in Portland for the past 35 years. This will be a fascinating discussion on the life and journey of a contemporary furniture maker. He will discuss his art education at the fascinating Glasgow School of Art, which is housed still in the monumental piece of architecture designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He’ll talk about what it takes to survive as a maker, the sacrifices and compromises, and the triumphs and joys of this work. He will also talk about his design work with screens and shoji screens in particular. For anyone interested in what it takes to be a furniture maker or with presumptions of becoming one, please come and listen to this veteran discuss his path. It will be enlightening.
