Maloof Veterans Workshop

Now in its eighth year, the Maloof Veterans Workshop 2021 serves men and women from the U.S. Military's in healing from PTSD. This workshop was developed as a way of introducing veterans to the healing effects of art-making through an exploration of the skills, tools, materials and processes of woodworking. The workshop introduces participants to the life and legacy of Sam Maloof and his wife Alfreda Ward Maloof, who were both veterans of World War II. Sam served in the US Army and Alfreda was a US Navy WAVE.
