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.

Click HERE to purchase  this video presentation sponsored by the Southern California Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, Curators and writers Jeffrey Head and Katie Nartonis, explore San Diego-based designer-craftsman Jack Rogers Hopkins (1920-2006).


Although he was a leading figure in California modernism of the mid 20th century, Hopkin's life and work is one of the last important untold stories of the West Coast’s post-WWII design era. His eclectic and visionary sculptural works in wood, ceramics and jewelry truly distinguish him from his peers Sam Maloof, George Nakashima, Wharton Esherick and Arthur Espenet Carpenter. Featured in the video features are many images of Hopkins’s work and details of his approach to art and life.
