We love to inspire our students anyway we can. We are constantly producing examples of made forms to show material and process. Both large and small we have gathered our smaller Vignettes, as we like to call them, together and have now displayed them for all to see. We believe in sharing information to enhance the sense of community within the Wood Workshop.
