The Furniture Masters are proud to offer the Alden Artisan Advancement Scholarship to help support an aspiring student or apprentice in furthering their career as a professional furniture designer/maker. The recipient of the scholarship will receive $1,000 towards the development and promotion of an original furniture piece which will then be on exhibit at the group’s annual Furniture Masters Main Event in the Fall of 2017. The Main Event is an opportunity to exhibit alongside established makers and interact with current and past patrons in an intimate setting.
The student/apprentice will be encouraged to create something which showcases their very best work. As part of the award the piece will be photographed by professional photographer Bill Truslow in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and it will be included in the Furniture Masters annual design book in the “Emerging Artist” section.
