    Instructor: Blake Johnson

    Blake started his woodworking career in a teaching environment, at art college, and hasn’t let that learning/teaching thing go ever since.  He has built scribed log playgrounds, museum casework and exhibits, furniture, and renovated houses.  He appreciates making for himself, and loved ones, objects that evoke joy and character for years to come. He loves the process of making things, the mental machinations, the problem-solving, and the many discoveries that come while working with a natural material. Each project becomes a process of getting to know the work, the wood, and in some ways, a bit of himself. This sense of empowerment and responsibility to a personal environment is something he hopes to spread in every place where he works. Some photos of his work can be seen at www.heartsparkarts.com and on Instagram at @runeshai.

    Stringed Instrument Visiting Artist:   

    Open Studio with Tucker Barrett

    *Pre-register if you are bringing an instrument (2 per evening) 

    No need to register to visit, chat, and watch Tucker work!


    After nearly 25 years of designing and building electric violins, violas and cellos, Tucker Barrett is no longer accepting orders for new instruments. He is now dedicating his time to the repair and restoration of vintage and contemporary acoustic and electric guitars.

    Trained and apprenticed under Ken Parker at Stuyvesant Music on 48th Street in NYC, he has been privileged to build custom guitars for such musicians as Pete Townsend, Andy Summers, Lou Reed, and Nile Rodgers, as well as many other professional and amateur musicians. He also repaired, maintained and set up guitars for many top groups such as the Pretenders, Foreigner, The Cars, The Police, and Joan Armatrading. 

    Set-ups and fretwork are his specialty. His experience and general understanding of how guitars function and change, especially in New England, allow him to improve the feel, playability and intonation of almost any instrument, whether used or new. 

    As a Stringed Instrument Visiting Artist at HatchSpace, Tucker is available Wednesdays, 6-9 pm for consultation, and guided restoration and repair of guitars (2 instruments per evening). Feel free to stop by for a chat with Tucker or to watch him work. Enter HatchSpace at 22 High Street, Brattleboro, Vermont, third floor #302  and follow signs. 

    *If you are bringing an instrument for consultation, please pre-register. These will be limited to 2 consults per evening. 

    No limit to the number of observers. Come and chat and watch Tucker work!

    No need to register to visit, chat, and watch Tucker work!

                                        
    After nearly 25 years of designing and building electric violins, violas and cellos, Tucker Barrett is no longer accepting orders for new instruments. He is now dedicating his time to the repair and restoration of vintage and contemporary acoustic and electric guitars.

    Trained and apprenticed under Ken Parker at Stuyvesant Music on 48th Street in NYC, he has been privileged to build custom guitars for such musicians as Pete Townsend, Andy Summers, Lou Reed, and Nile Rodgers, as well as many other professional and amateur musicians. He also repaired, maintained and set up guitars for many top groups such as the Pretenders, Foreigner, The Cars, The Police, and Joan Armatrading. 

    Set-ups and fretwork are his specialty. His experience and general understanding of how guitars function and change, especially in New England, allow him to improve the feel, playability and intonation of almost any instrument, whether used or new. 

    As a Stringed Instrument Visiting Artist at HatchSpace, Tucker is available Wednesdays, 6-9 pm for consultation, and guided restoration and repair of guitars (2 instruments per evening). Feel free to stop by for a chat with Tucker or to watch him work. Enter HatchSpace at 22 High Street, Brattleboro, Vermont, third floor #302  and follow signs. 

    *If you are bringing an instrument for consultation, please pre-register. These will be limited to 2 consults per evening. 

    No limit to the number of observers. Come and chat and watch Tucker work!
