Making a Greene & Greene Document Box with Doug Dale (Tues to Sat) April 19 - 23, 2022

about this workshop

Charles and Henry Greene as architects and designers set a standard of excellence in their interpretation of the arts and crafts style. Their blending of arts and crafts with an oriental design created a unique and distinctive style. Two other brothers, Peter and John Hall were also heavily involved with the final appearance of the work attributed to the Greenes. They were the craftsman who built the houses and furniture to such high standards. This document box will highlight the details that make a Greene and Greene piece. Box joints left proud and gently rounded, breadboard ends with ebony splines, gently domed square pegs highlighting the joinery and fine inlay all add up to a special piece. Learn how to incorporate all these fine details in this document box that epitomizes the craft. Make one and get ready to make many more as family and friends request they be next to receive such a special gift.
