What you'll learn in this furniture class:

To accommodate apartment living and as a learning project, each participant will make a moderate size shoji, around 24”x24”. All of the same methods used in full size shojis, 36”x72”, will be used in the smaller version.

We will cover design considerations, choice of wood and paper and joinery.
