Spring day trip to Pennsylvania for exclusive tours of Nakashima Woodworker Studio and The Wharton Esherick Museum. Transport via private coach optional.
Our first stop will be the celebrated Nakashima Woodworker Studio in New Hope, PA. Mira Nakashima, daughter of legendary woodworker George Nakashima and friend of DG, will welcome us and lead us on a very special tour of the property including: Showroom, Conoid Studio, Museum and House -- all located within the spiritual woods of the vast Nakashima Property.
Following our time at Nakashima, we will enjoy lunch and networking session at the historic Cedar Hollow Inn. Sure to be a treat! After lunch, we will head over to Wharton Esherick just 10 minutes away in Malvern, PA! We will take an exclusive tour of The Wharton Esherick Museum to view Wharton Esherick's original home and unique forms of furniture, furnishings, utensils, interiors, buildings and more. His motto, "if it isn't fun, it isn't worth doing," is evident in the joyful expression of his work, inviting the eye and the hand. A National Historic Landmark for Architecture, we will view hilltop studio/residence, with more than 300 of his works on exhibition.
