North House Folk School Wood Week

Date: March 11, 2024 - March 18, 2024

Time: All Day

Location: North House Folk School

Event Description

Wood Week explores the many ways wood can be shaped into useful, beautiful and satisfying objects. Each course offering dives deep into a particular form or tool, but a shared interest in what can be made from trees links everyone who joins in on the fun. This year we feature two guest instructors— Julia Kalthoff and Mark Gardner as well as a host of talented North House “regulars.”

We are pleased to welcome special guest Julia Kalthoff of Stockholm, Sweden. Julia is passionate about axes- and her passion is contagious! After learning her trade at renowned Swedish companies Gränfors Bruk and Wetterlings, Julia has started her own small company Kalthoff axes, producing high quality axes at a small scale. She will teach two classes and demonstrate during the Carver’s Conference.

This will be Mark Gardner‘s first trip to North House. Mark is a well-respected wood turner who will explore a very traditional form- the shrink box- on the lathe. Mark will give a  featured demonstration on Friday, March 17 on small handled wooden bowls.

Friday, March 15 will be the Carver’s Conference, a day full of demonstrations, workshops, skill shares, and community gatherings. All enrolled students are encouraged to come early or stay late to partake of this extra benefit.
