This year I've had a couple of really great workshop opportunities. I wanted to share them!

The first was visiting artist Julia Harrison from Seattle, Washington. She came for a woodworking and finishing workshop and lecture. Her work is awesome, and she showed us some great ways of coloring, finishing, and shaping wood. She also had a lot of great info. on working with a variety of different woods. Here's a couple images of her work:Image Courtesy http://beckanderson.blogspot.com

During the workshop, we experimented with carving from small blanks first, then moved on to large blocks ... and carved a spoon completely by hand! Here are some pictures:
