News & Views: Peter Korn Retires

Peter Korn, founder of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, retired from his role as its Executive Director in December 2021. The Center began as a school in Korn’s home shop in 1993, founded on the idea that “creating useful, beautiful objects in wood can be as profound an exploration of the human spirit as any other visual art.” In retirement, he plans to continue teaching and making furniture, while pursuing other passions of writing, sailing, and cooking. Meg Weston, former president of the Maine Media Workshops + College, succeeds Korn as Executive Director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship on an interim basis.
