AIA Bucks County is offering local residents the chance to tour a local woodworking studio that is renowned around the country.
The Doylestown-based group, a local branch of the American Institute for Architects, will be hosting a tour of the studios of Nakashima Woodworkers on Sept. 29 from 1 – 3 PM. Located at 1847 Aquetong Road in New Hope, the tour is open to members and non-members of AIA Bucks County.
The business was founded by George Nakashima, a famous woodworker who worked out of the Bucks County area for several years. Having passed away in 1990, the studio is still in business, producing unique pieces for those looking for the aesthetically unique.
Tickets are $75 for members and $100 for non-members. Those interested in attending can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve their spot.
For those interested in learning about Nakashima’s groundbreaking philosophy on woodworking, there are two books that have been produced by the studio, and both can be found at Farley’s Bookshop, located at 44 South Main Street in New Hope.
“Process” was made by the Nakashima Woodworkers and details their works and methods. “The Soul of a Tree: A Woodworker’s Reflection” is a popular work written by Nakashima himself.
