PP2 Stool and Chest 4 Telluride’s Ah Haa School for the Arts continues its weekend immersions with a round of “Wooden It Be Loverly,” this rendition, not from “My Fair Lady.”

We are talking about artist Justin Bain’s two classes focusing on the art of working wood: “Hand-cut Dovetail Box,” Friday – Saturday, July 15 – July 16, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.  and “Introduction to Wood Bending,” Friday– Saturday, July 29 – July 30, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Both workshops take place at the artist’s studio, Alacran Woodworks, in Rico, Colorado.

PP7 Shaker Box 2 Alacran Woodworks, owned and operated by brothers Brandon and Justin Bain, specializes in the design and construction of custom furniture. Using hand tools, old-fashioned joinery and the finest American hardwoods, the Bain brothers build heirloom quality pieces for generations to use and enjoy. Their style, centered around the mining history of the San Juan Mountains, incorporates the simple strength of Japanese joinery with the visible structure of Arts and Crafts era designs.
