One of my objectives for this blog is to give readers the opportunity to meet the students. Since coming to the Center two years ago as a student myself, I’ve continually been impressed by the spectrum of the student body. People of all ages and experience come from all over; and, although they are participating in the same program, their goals are often quite different.

Michaela Crie Stone grew up swinging on buoys tied to trees, arranging perfectly coiffed seaweed wigs, and building forts in the woods on the coast of Maine. After receiving a degree in sculpture, she returned to her home town of Rockport to attend the Center’s Twelve-Week Intensive in 2011. Michaela subsequently worked as a summer assistant and was awarded a year-long Studio Fellowship. She still dabbles in fort-building.
The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship is a nonprofit, year-round school that offers courses in furniture making and related arts such as carving and woodturning.
