In today’s tech-driven society, a post-industrial nostalgia for the handcrafted object has experienced a resurgence.

The exhibit consists of vessels, furniture and sculptures, as well as a collection of antique tools and an introduction to woodworking techniques. Included is a KidZEO area where children can construct wooden objects utilizing instruction cards.
