Object Lesson is a monthly First Friday speaker series that will open wide the cases of the Center’s Museum Collection through the perspectives of individuals from the worlds of art, design, performance, community activism, education, and more, creating fresh dialogues about the Collection and its objects. The series invites the public for an up-close and personal experience in an informal, discursive setting that will encourage exploration of the many treasures in the Collection.

Janine Wang discovered woodworking while studying to become an architect, and once she got her hands on the materials, she couldn’t go back to drafting at the desk or computer again. She has worked for years in the home goods and furniture design industry while keeping one foot firmly rooted in the woodturning and hand-crafted world. Today she teaches woodworking and woodturning full time, helping to spread the joy and empowerment of building the environment we live in, one object at a time.
Janine lives in Philadelphia and teaches at Bucks County Community College and the nonprofit organization TinyWPA. She holds a BArch from the Cooper Union School for the Advancement of Science and Art and an MA in furniture design from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is a member of the AAW, has exhibited widely and has done residencies at the Goggleworks Center for the Arts, Arrowmont School of Craft, Hunterdon Art Museum, Dovetail Wood Arts, and the Center for Art in Wood.


This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
