Eric Adjetey Anang is a Ghanaian sculptor and fantasy coffin carpenter. He was born in Teshie, Ghana, where he lived and ran the Kane Kwei Carpentry Workshop building custom coffins, a family tradition started by this grandfather. During his time in Madison as the Bubbler artist-in-residence, Eric will be interacting with the public through hosting workshops on woodworking with hand tools, while creating his next life-size wooden coffin in the library. Individuals of all ages are welcome to visit the library and explore the craft of woodworking, try using a variety of different hand tools, and learn more about the sacred tradition of designer coffin making. Drop in during Eric's open studio times in the coming months. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

The Bubbler and the Media Lab are supported by grants from Madison Public Library Foundation and The Friends of the Madison Public Library.
