Work of Aaron Clapp at NH Open Doors event in Meredith

Aaron Clapp will participate in the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery New Hampshire Open Doors event. He is known for the hand-carved spoons he creates from unusual pieces of wood he finds traversing the New Hampshire forests. Clapp is mostly self-taught, and although he usually makes wooden spoons, he has also made cabinets, a skill he learned from Mark Hopkins of Canterbury. Some of his spoons are part of a collection at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass. Clapp will demonstrate the process of making his wooden pieces at the Meredith gallery during the NH Open Doors event Nov. 2-3, noon-4 p.m. Stop into the gallery at 279 Daniel Webster Highway to see Clapp's work and to watch his crafting in action.
