Discover the amazing woodworking art
of Kumiko

Lakes Area Unlimited Learning is proud to present Vince W. Cook, Brainerd, an expert in the dazzling wood working craft of Kumiko, a 400 year-old style that uses pressure and precise angles to form about 200 traditional patterns. Kumiko motifs symbolize strength, health, beauty and longevity. They are commonly used to decorate shoji screens, the room partitions in Japanese homes and businesses. 
A life-long woodworker, Mr. Cook has studied furniture making, design and finishing at North Bennett Street School in Boston, MA, and the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop. In 2017, he received an arts grant from the Five Wings Arts Council to study Kumiko at the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop.

Mr. Cook will present a film and demonstrate the art of Kumiko at Unlimited Learning's meeting on Monday, January 10, at 1:30 p.m. in the Forum Room of Crosby-Ironton High School. Admission is free for members and $5.00 for non-members.
