Windsor Chairmaker Elia Bizzarri, known for his impeccable craftsmanship, will be interacting with the public and demonstrating his highly-refined turning skills at Grovewood Gallery on Saturday, Oct. 7, from 11am-4pm. Using traditional tools and techniques, Bizzarri rives, hews, shaves and turns elegant furniture out of maple, poplar, hickory and oak. He was featured building a continuous arm rocking chair on Roy Underhill’s series The Woodwright’s Shop on PBS. His work was also showcased in the Celebrate NC Craft Exhibition at the Governor’s Mansion in 2010.
