Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop you will learn about the Northwest Coast carving using traditional materials such as cedar, birch and alder. Workshop participants learn to work with the wood grain, use a variety of carving knives, and learn about traditional artistic symbols, figures, and legends while creating a hands-on project. My aim is to immerse people in the experience of carving as our Indigenous ancestors once did. As participants explore the complexities of creating something as simple as a kitchen tool, they may use their imagination to understand what it might have been like to be an Indigenous person thousands of years ago. Historical view of our ancestral beginnings and appreciation for contributions of Indigenous peoples.
