ShackletonThomas is proud to be a part of the central Vermont community, and supports a wide range of local, regional, statewide, and global causes with an emphasis on the arts and the environment. Located in a 180-year-old woolen mill in Bridgewater, Vermont, the workshops make use of an existing historical structure, with the aim of drawing interest and revitalization to what has been an important community center. From hosting an annual open house for 400 of our “closest friends” to supporting local artists, ShackletonThomas believes that facilitating and supporting community connections brings about vibrancy and community health, which ultimately adds to the quality of life in the region.
The Naked Table Project
is at the forefront of our commitment to the community. The project builds tables with and for friends and families in communities across New England, made of Vermont’s iconic Sugar Maple which has been responsibly managed and locally harvested. We build in our workshops, walk and learn in our forests, and celebrate over a locavore feast upon our tables — forest to table.
