The Furniture Masters of New Hampshire State Prison
For nearly two decades, the Furniture Masters of New Hampshire have been leading a program at the state men's prison in Concord. They teach a woodworking skill to inmates in the hobby shop, and return a month later to check on the progress.
For some inmates, these workshops have opened the door to mastering the craft of furniture making; and to a changed perspective on the world.
On this week's episode, we hear from these inmates, and from a UNH professor and woodworker wants to bring the same skills to incarcerated women.
