Trick took time to speak to our current students about his design philosophy and the process of creating the hardwood frames and the 8 way hand-tied springs, of choosing the fabrics, down cushions, and all the elements that are important when creating quality, heirloom pieces. He encouraged our students to really understand that process so they can better communicate with workrooms in creating unique pieces for their clients.
Bonus, our students also got to meet alumna Annabelle Doyle, who graduated in 2020, and now works for Trick.
CHES instructors, like Ms. Faulkner, strive to connect students with industry leaders and show them career possibilities in their fields. For current students, the chance to hear from successful alumni is especially inspirational.
Thanks to Grant Trick for being that inspiration!
