Donna Kim- Edge of Your Seat

Donna Kim.jpg

Donna Kim says it was only by chance that she became a chair weaver when she met  master craftsman Peter Shoebridge. She took a weaving class on a whim at the age of 16 and after a decade of studying under Peter and after Peter's retirement, Donna started Edge of Your Seat in 2006. A community minded studio, workshop and class space. 

Now Donna collaborates with designers and makers to create custom pieces and offers classes in the art. Donna is only one of a handful of people who have preserved the art of chair weaving. She not only creates new works, but is a master at restoring classic pieces using traditional techniques. 

Donna truly is a master at what she does. We're glad we met her and we're happy that she is part of the company we keep.
