Making in New England
Great craftsmanship comes in many arts and forms. In Newport, and throughout New England, we are fortunate to have many world renowned masters in a variety of fields—from furniture makers, artisans and traditional boat builders to extraordinary architects and designers working with innovative materials and technologies. Join us for our annual fall lecture series featuring four highly regarded New England makers working in very different fields. The collective series celebrates the diversity of great craft and the passion, technique and thinking behind it.
