Join us for an evening of hands-on design with acclaimed Mexican designer, Emiliano Godoy, whose products are on view in Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial. With a commitment to a socially and environmentally responsible practice, Godoy develops processes that rely on skilled labor and utilize local materials.
During the workshop participants will learn about the history of marquetry and Godoy’s contemporary approach to this traditional craft and furniture-making technique. Each participant will create their own unique contemporary mosaic design, using small colored tangram tiles of wood. For ages 18 and up. Workshop materials will be provided.
