Alexandra Forbes

Alexandra has been excited about wood and carving since she was a child. She started exploring wood as a teenager, carving bowls and expressive pieces. In her 20s she started teaching woodcraft to children in a small elementary school. Returning to finish her BA degree, she was moved to write about woodcraft as a vehicle for expressing creativity and developing self-empowerment in children. Later she designed and built several saunas, a sailing dory and started sculpting furniture pieces including lamps, mirrors and chairs.
Currently she is enthralled with designing and building a small “gypsy” style rolling studio to bring her workshops out into the world. She has found the strength and beauty of wood to be a particularly responsive medium for both self-expression and utility.
