        George Nakashima Segment | Craft in America

        George Nakashima & Mira Nakashima segment from the LANDSCAPE episode. George Nakashima (1905-1990) was a woodworker, born in Spokane, Washington. He attended the University of Washington and received his Masters in Architecture from M.I.T. During WW2, he was placed in an internment camp where he learned woodworking from a Japanese carpenter. In 1943 he opened a woodworking shop and studio in New Hope, Pennsylvania and employed some of the world’s finest craftsmen. Today the Nakashima Studio is operated by his daughter, Mira Nakashima-Yarnall.
