When we thing of Greene & Greene – the many details come to mind.
But it’s much more than just the details – it’s the how those details were rendered and used in context.
The original work of the Greene brothers was implemented with subtlety and finesse. An understanding of the nuances behind the details is what makes this iconic style come alive.
In the process of building a small table we will take time to examine the original work of the Greene’s and take a deep dive into the minutiae.
Through slide shows and practical application students will gain a greater understanding of the Brothers Greene and their work. Several of the most commonly used and recognizable of the details will be covered. But more importantly the concepts behind the details will give students the essentials needed for designing and working in the style of Greene and Greene.
Detailed drawings and discussion will also cover making all the jigs and templates that go along with producing the various details.
This class is basically a five-day version of my two day G&G Details class. The difference being, we dive a little deeper into the nuances and in the process build a small table.
Please join us for a fun week of woodworking and Greene & Greene!
