TIME TRAVELERS YOUTH PROGRAM: GUEST artist series
WEEK 1: "HOW?" ANTIQUE TOOLS & WOODWORKING WITH CHRIS FOKINE
TUESDAY, JULY 27 THROUGH THURSDAY, JULY 29, 9AM - 12PM, AGES 6-11
Chris Fokine is a master builder and owner of Fokine Construction, operating on Shelter Island for over 35 years. Chris is a promoter of good design which has enabled him to combine his background in visual arts with his carpentry skills. His interest in history and craftsmanship led him to explore the work of the Shaker movement and their devotion to simple, artistic construction. Recently, Chris and his company completed the renovation of the 1743 Havens House and construction of The Shelter Island History Center.
Martha Pichey has designed and built wooden toys and taught carpentry to children ages 6-12. She built a cabin when she was a teenager and learned how important and satisfying it is making things with your own two hands.
Elias Fokine, Chris’ son, is following in his father’s footsteps—creative, personable, and an excellent carpenter.
