Don’t miss this chance to see work from one of the top fine woodworking schools in the country. “Every semester our students create work that is inventive, artistic and beautifully finished. We want to introduce the community to our program as a rich resource for talent and training, and expose collectors and professional wood workers to the emerging generation of innovative wood artisans,” says Red Rocks Fine Woodworking Program Co-Chair Jeremy Cox.
Kent Mace, owner CS Woods owner and founder of Collectors Specialty Woods and President of Red Rocks Fine Woodworking Advisory Board says, “CS Woods is a unique wood source used by professional designers and woodworkers nationwide. When we opened our Denver showroom in 2012, we began attracting an even larger pool of regional and national architects and designers, as well as local woodworkers and Red Rocks Fine Woodworking students and faculty. Red Rocks Fine Woodworking program is a remarkable asset to the region, and its students produce amazing works. We are excited to host this event and showcase the accomplished work by RRCC students.”
