Greenwood Fest 2016

This was an amazing time. I was able to take classes with JoJo Wood, David Fisher, Beth Moen, and Jogge Sundqvist! It was such a great time.

Beth Moens bowl carving class, love those chopping blocks.

 

 

Getting the shape going, its yellow birch.

Just happened to be in JoJo’s class when a few people stopped by.

David Fishers class on bird bowls, sun was hot the bald head needed some shade.

It was refreshing being around so many other carvers. My skills improved overnight by being there. It also allowed me to combine the art of my grandmother, with the art I am doing, with the art that I learned about in art school with who I am. There is no price I can put on that.  It was life changing to me.

I love these chopping blocks.  Stable and let you adze and ax with ease.
