Live Zoom: Roy Underhill and Peter Ross – A Conversation with Two Master Artisans

March 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Register for our live Zoom conversation with two, well-known master artisans, Roy Underhill and Peter Ross. Participants will enjoy a lively discussion followed by questions and answers with the audience.

Roy Underhill is best known as the creator and host of the PBS series The Woodwright’s Shop, one of the longest running programs in the history of television. He is the author of seven books on traditional woodcraft as well as “Khruschev’s Shoe” which explores the application of intelligence theory to informal education. While working in television, Roy also served as Master HouseWright for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, where he and his crew recreated the work of 18th century carpenters and joiners. Dedicated to historically informed woodworking, Roy now runs The Woodwright’s School in North Carolina and carries his axe wherever he goes.

Peter Ross is a nationally recognized artisan blacksmith and whitesmith. His interest in historic ironwork is based on an era and culture in which “handmade” was the primary method of production. After 23 years as master of the blacksmith shop at Colonial Williamsburg, he moved to rural North Carolina and now operates his own shop. Peter specializes in museum-quality reproductions of hardware and furnishings for historic houses, working mainly with the hand-tool methods used in pre-industrial England and America.
