Workshop Dates: Saturday, May 22nd & Sunday, May 23rd
Location: The Maloof, 5131 Carnelian St., Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91701

Led by artist Lauren Verdugo, the workshop will introduce participants to the materials, tools and skills of woodworking in a furniture-making project inspired by the life and career of California Modernist woodworker Sam Maloof (1916-2009). Supported in part with a grant from the California Arts Council, the workshop is suitable for first-time woodworkers, providing 16 hours of hands-on experience in the making of a three-legged wooden stool inspired by Maloof’s own teaching of students during a 1963 trip to El Salvador arranged by the U.S. State Department. Each participant will saw, join, shape and finish an artful stool made of solid walnut.

To enter and read the official rules
