Craftsman and author Peter Korn featured in “A Life’s Work” documentary film

Peter Korn, author of Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman (Godine, 2013), appears in A Life’s Work: The Philosophy of a Craftsman—a 17-minute documentary by British filmmaker Ben Spilling. Korn is the founder and executive director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine.

A Life’s Work examines the genesis of that idea in Korn’s years at the workbench, and how it led him to establish a thriving international school for wood craftsmanship and design. The film was an official selection at the 2018 Architecture Design Art Film Festival in Palm Springs, CA, and the Oxford Film Festival in Oxford, MS.
