David Trubridge is teaching a 2-day Design Master Class at the Centre for Fine Woodworking, New Zealand's premier furniture making, woodworking & design school.

David has kindly agreed to offer a public lecture called "Beauty Matters" - this talk is for anyone who has an interest in the creative process, and those who love of nature makes them worry at our abuse of the environment.

"Beauty is a fundamental expression of our humanity, of who we are, and if we deny beauty we deny our humanity....and our future".

Essentially a meditation on our relationship with the natural world, the talk shows how our idea of beauty grew out of that relationship and why it matters so much today. David builds on the writing of well known thinkers, adding his own thoughts about the origin of beauty and its role in the creative process on which he has a unique take. He follows Western culture from cave art, through to the rational and romantic cycles of the past 2500 years.

It is not a sentimental look back at better bygone days, but a contemporary take on the human condition, written by someone who cares deeply, and who lives by these beliefs at work and play.
