March Guild Meeting - Story Furniture

Where -Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR 97219
When - March 19, 2019, 6:00 - 9:00


At the March meeting we have another opportunity to tap into one of our local resources of woodworking knowledge and expertise. John Sheridan will be presenting a class that he developed and taught for 10 years at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and may be teaching again at the Northwest College of Art. He will be providing a slideshow of the various works that were created in his classes along with a discussion about the focus of the class. Every piece of Furniture has a story to tell!

John Sheridan

If you are not familiar with John, he is an internationally known designer and builder of furniture and sculpture who studied woodworking at Peters Valley Craft Center in New Jersey after graduating from Washington University in St. Louis. In addition to having his own studio in San Francisco, John has taught at many schools around the country and written for multiple woodworking magazines. John has been an active member of the Guild for over three years since moving to Portland from San Francisco.

Show & Tell & Raffle

Be sure to bring your show-and-tell items to share and be sure to bring some extra cash for the raffle! John will be donating a replica of the first La-Z-Boy wood folding recliner (see picture).



See you all at the Multnomah Arts Center on March 19th. Social time starts at 6:00 with the general meeting starting at 7:00. The board meeting will be held in room 7 at the MAC from 5:30-6:30 for anyone that would like to attend.
