What You'll Do
Dean Robertson listens to the wood when he works. Whether he found it at a wood-working school, a luthier, or a cabinet-making shop, he expresses the elegance within, transforming what would otherwise have been scrap into something beautiful and wearable. To teach you to do the same, he supplies the reclaimed materials and demonstrates the process for crafting an eco-friendly wood ring.
Soak Up Skills from a Wood Worker
Learn the steps it takes to turn reclaimed wood into a unique ring.
Although Dean handles the dangerous steps, he gives you ample hands-on opportunities to personalize your ring.
Take Your Ring Home
Leave Dean's workshop with your creation. If you don't have time to complete it during the session, Dean will finish the ring and mail it to you.
Students should bring their own safety glasses and ear plugs as well as clothing they don't mind getting dusty; Dean supplies dust masks.
Each event is capped at 10 participants; each event requires a minimum of 3 participants in order to take place.
Eight years is a long time to live anywhere—especially in the Alaskan wilderness. But that's just what Dean Robertson did. He learned how to live off the land like the natives did and to create the tools necessary for survival, skills Dean still uses today. Combining this experience with his degree in fine woodworking, he crafts stunning pieces of eco-friendly jewelry that have been featured in three volumes of Fine Wood Artists.
