Media: Wood

Craig Altobello was introduced to woodworking in 1978 during a workshop with designer and craftsman Thomas Moser of Maine. Ever since, he has been making furniture for his family and friends. Craig has attended workshops and seminars at Haystack School of Crafts and the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine; Shelburne Art Center in Vermont; and the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough, NH.His path to marquetry grew out of teaching middle school science, where he and his students documented their outdoor explorations through writing and art using cut paper collage. Craig saw the potential to work with the colors and patterns he saw in wood to bring “collage” to his woodworking.
