Maymester allowed the Sculpture area to provide another successful chair making class. Students Hal Boerner, Mary Lucas Halliwell, Sarah Kilpatrick, Patrick Tranum, Morgan Welch and Amanda Whitaker researched, designed, drafted and produced the beautiful chairs pictured here using a variety of techniques and materials.

Students learned to use vacuum pressing, veneering and joinery. Woods used included Hickory, Mahogony, Maple and Walnut. The chairs will be on display at the Visual Art Center and in the Art Department Office throughout the summer.
