Event description



If you like to jazz up your house around World Penguin Day, National Potato Chip Day, or if you're just an enthusiast of the classic holidays, then a new table centerpiece is a must-have for you. Rustic and rectanguler, it can accommodate decorations for absolutely any occasion.

All materials are included in the class fee.

Please read the workshop policies below!


Tom Cray has a BFA in Fine Arts and a MFA in Woodworking and Furniture Design, which led him to work as a high-end cabinetmaker for several years and then as a product designer for 25 more. In addition to joining our team as an instructor at the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse, Tom also teaches with the Chicago School of Woodworking. When he isn’t teaching, he is working away in his own shop building furniture, including period reproductions, and designing and building boxes with marquetry.
