Have you ever looked at the curves in piece of furniture and wondered just how it was built? If so, this is the seminar you will not want to miss!

David Orth is a renowned professional artist, sculptor, woodworker, designer, writer and all around good guy. You can preview more of his extraordinary work at http://www.orthsculpture.com.
David will not only show us how to make things, but will also encourage us to question why we are making things. He will sprinkle his design tips throughout the weekend too.
David works and lives in the Chicago area. His sculpture and furniture has been featured in museums, galleries, books and magazines since the early 1980s. It has been described as "amazing, overwhelming and musical; rock and roll, the blues, and arias." Others have suggested his work has a "wonderful, mess-with-your-mind appeal."
