In order to be in compliance with the new State and County regulations, COVID acceptable masks must be worn at all times when in the Guild shop.
The Olympia Woodworkers Guild members have been invited to our monthly Guild meetings and happy to reciprocate by inviting all our members to a special presentation by Jennifer Angaiak Wood (www.yupikjen.com)
Jennifer is an artist of Yup'ik, Irish and Italian descent, and was born and raised in Fairbanks, AK. Jennifer started carving masks when she took an Alaska Native Art class in high school, and has been mostly self-taught after the unexpected passing of her teacher, Ron Manook. Since moving to the Seattle area in 2015, she has met and worked with other artists, who are helping her learn to use more traditional tools such as bent knives and adzes. Jennifer's inspirations include historic masks, stories, and her time spent in Tununak growing up.
The Zoom Link will be sent out in the 9/27 weekly email blast.
Thanks to Bill Cogswell, our Facebook manager and member of the Olympia Guild for the invitation
