Alexandra Forbes has explored wood and woodcraft since she was a teen in California and in the Alaska wilderness, carving bowls and small expressive pieces. In her twenties she began teaching woodcraft in northern Vermont to adults and children in a rural public elementary school. Later she designed and built several saunas and a sailing dory and started sculpting furniture pieces including driftwood lamps, mirrors and chairs. Recently she has brought her spoon and ladle carving workshop out into the community in a small style studio wagon she built. Alexandra has taught workshops in the Alaskan wilderness, Green Tara gallery, the Shelburne Craft School, and Snow Farm, and she has ongoing classes in her home studio.
