Adrian Ferrazzutti is a furniture maker working in Guelph, Canada. He is a 1998 graduate of The College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program where he studied under James Krenov and faculty. He specializes in custom work, consisting of bent wood and veneer. Adrian runs a shared wood shop where he works along with 6 other makers. Together they continually try to inspire each other and advance each others workmanship and sense of design. His shop is always open for visitors, be it to just say hello, have some cuts made or stay longer and see what everyone is up too. Adrian also spends a good portion of his year teaching at schools and art centers in Canada and the U.S.
This multi-discipline class will cover a wide array of techniques, all aimed at developing your skills in box making, veneering and hardware installation.
You’ll also find that your patterning, colour planning, and visual impact skills will also be given an opportunity to flex. As part of your growth in furniture making, it is valuable to know how to select colours and patterns so that they support the design idea of furniture pieces.
