Gain a deeper understanding of woodworking from Adam, and explore an exhibition of works by Gordon Dunphy in the Lower Gallery.

Adam teaches a wood crafting course at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, and is the Community Development Coordinator at The Ville Cooperative, where he also mentors interns in regenerative agriculture.
