The Art and Craft of Working with Wood

We've renamed the Free Lecture / Presentation Series to "The Art and Craft of Working with Wood". This new name really reflects what we're trying to do with the series. Some of the presentations share the joy of working with wood for Art or to create homes. The homes can be on the ground, in a tree or on wheels

We need to work on timing a little... Kim Kelzer gave a wonderful presentation of her philosophy and work last week. Little did I know that it was going to be the same evening as Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the DNC when I asked Kim to give the presentation back in May. A small but enthusiastic audience got a whirlwind tour of Kim's life and work. Many thanks Kim!

I'm envious of the speed and intensity of Kim's new work. She certainly challenged me to think about how to work faster. Catch Kim's new work at the Museo in Langley on Whidbey Island from September 6th through 28th.

Next up Jim Tolpin on making a Gypsy Wagon (house on wheels) and then Jake Jacobs on Treehouses.

More details here.
