Lesson Connection: Twig Furniture builds upon our ArtVoiceWV video about twig furniture maker Tim Wohleber. This lesson focus on two standard areas – art and social studies. Check it out on the Teacher Resources page. https://artvoicewv.com/teacher-resources/
Tim Wohleber jumped into making rustic twig furniture around age 15, after he read a book about making your own furniture. He started with small personal items but family and friends were impressed and asked him to create something for him. A friend of his in Elkins, where Tim hails from, ask him to make some beer taps and bar stools for him. And from there Tim became a serious twig furniture maker.
