What wood is it and why? Seeing and understanding wood in a whole new way.
Weekend of September 18-19, 2021 (Saturday 9.00am-4.00pm, Sunday 11:00 – 4:00)
MYSTIC, CONN – Did you ever look at a piece of wood and wonder what wood it is? And why it looks the way it does? Were you ever confused about which wood it is: mahogany, walnut, cherry, or poplar?
This two-day hands-on workshop at the dynamic Mystic Seaport Museum is taught by Randy S. Wilkinson and will answer all these questions and more. It is designed specifically for curators, collectors, antique dealers, appraisers, and conservators. The goal of this workshop is to familiarize the student with the physical properties of wood in order to recognize species specific cell structures. No experience is necessary.
