Detailed Description

Why We Make Things and Why It Matters : The Education of a Craftsman. Author, Peter Korn

In his highly-acclaimed new book Why We Make Things and Why It Matters, woodworker Peter Korn explores the creative process based on his own particular journey as a furniture maker and teacher, discussing the challenge of bringing something unique and meaningful to our work.

Not a "how-to" book, it is rather a study of how our environment and experiences shape our work and in turn, how our work shapes us.

Library Journal calls it "an uplifting title for artisans, novice or skilled, who will benefit from the ideas of a kindred spirit." Click here to read additional insightful reviews.
