PORT TOWNSEND – The fine arts side of woodworking is the subject of the Jefferson County Historical Society’s presentation this Friday, featuring artist and educator Kimberly Winkle and the Port Townsend School of Woodworking.
In this program – which is part of the monthly First Friday Lecture Series – Winkle will tell her story and dive into her own creative process, according to the company’s website, JCHSmuseum.org.
The Zoom event will start at 7 p.m. and will last approximately one hour, with one admission per donation. The nonprofit historical society suggests a contribution of $ 10 and prior registration is required on JCHSmuseum.org via the Education and Programs link at the top of the page. For more information, call the Jefferson Museum of Art and History at 360-385-1003.
Like the other speakers in the 2021 series, titled “The Art of Making,” Winkle is a hands-on creator. She shapes furniture and other art objects with wood and paint, striving to balance form, color and surface pattern, and has exhibited her pieces internationally.
