Local blog DCist has a great post about activities happening during CraftWeek DC, taking place between today, April 22nd and April 26th. Included are studio tours, lectures, a special tour by the curator of the Greene & Greene exhibition at the Renwick and any number of galas and benefits that mainly support the Smithsonian's craft acquisition, research and education programs surrounding contemporary craft.
For fans of Etsy or Sugar Loaf, DC this weekend is going to be a veritable playground.
Mark is one of the owners of Hardwood Artisans, creators of fine solid hardwood furniture for customers in Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC for over 30 years. Mark handles warranty work for the company as well as much of the custom design work and new collection design.
Outside of furniture-making, Mark lives with his wife of 23 years in a home they built together with their own four hands. Mark’s gardening talents, though award-winning, pale in comparison to his wife’s master gardening skills.
