Historic Woodworking Seminar

January 20 from 11:00 am - 3:30 pm


The villa at Poplar Forest is a monument to Thomas Jefferson’s architectural design prowess, while the decorative elements inside highlight the expertise and craftsmanship of enslaved artisans such as John Hemmings. Join Poplar Forest’s restoration supervisor, Austin Englund, and special guest Daniel Hrinko, an expert box and furniture maker known for handcrafting bentwood boxes and furniture using 18th century woodworking techniques, for an in-depth look at the craftsmanship required to bring Jefferson’s furniture and millwork designs to life. Learn more about the processes and skillfulness needed to complete a fully furnished home like Poplar Forest through demonstrations, and a Q&A. Admission is $30 and includes admission to the property and self-guided exhibits; reservations are encouraged as spots for each seminar are limited.

*Please note, there are no refunds for event tickets for any reason.
