I spent 5 weeks this summer at North House Folk school in Grand Marais, Minnesota, teaching shoe making and learning as well. I participated in a timber framing basics class, had the best conversations, and heard some mind blowing stories! I also got super inspired by all the carvers! Harley, Jarrod, Bruce, Fred, Jon, Rodger… too many to name! I picked up a few tools from the North House store and carved some spoons of my own! oh yeah! and the spring pole lathe!! Gonna build one of those in the coming months to… any way.. here are a few pics from my grand adventure on the North Shore..
