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, October 7 from 11am - 4pm. 

Using traditional tools and techniques, Elia rives, hews, shaves and turns elegant furniture out of maple, poplar, hickory and oak. He was recently featured building a Continuous Arm Rocking Chair on Roy Underhill’s series “The Woodwright’s Shop” on PBS, and his work was also showcased in the Celebrate NC Craft Exhibition at the Governor’s Mansion in 2010.
