    Wilsonart Webinar: Manmade vs. Natural (1 IDCEC hour)

    Complimenbtary for IDC members.
    On Thursday, September 18, you are invited to be a part of The Wilsonart Cre8ivity Tour.

    In this age of tree plantations, engineered lumber and bio board, what, exactly, does “natural” mean? And, are natural materials always a better choice than manufactured ones? Explore these and other issues that influence our decisions about natural and synthetic materials. Discuss the surprising truths about materials, confront some preconceptions and ultimately become a more educated specifier.

    We’ll discuss a new set of criteria for evaluating the authenticity and appropriateness of materials—especially wood. Weigh the impact of synthetic versus natural materials, including which has the better environmental outcome. Learn to tell new stories through material choice. You’ll see materials in a more realistic and holistic way.

    Presenter: Grace Jeffers, Design Historian and Author, Interiors & Sources, New York, NY.
