Bill Woolley has been practicing his turning for three years...he works every day in his shop, honing his skills and his sensitivity to design. He sells his work, from his home, all across the USA.
Young and old Vernonians who want to learn this skill sign up to get lessons from Bill. There is no charge for the lessons or materials, Grants pay for our supplies. Together we are the building blocks of Vernonia’s Artisan Community.
Mentorship...Pass It On
We teach any of our members, age 14 to 92, how to do our crafts - from flower arranging to card making to photography, whatever we can from A to Z. We share our skills within our Community. This is our Mission as a Nonprofit: Pass on our abilities and build a genuine Arts Guild and Community In Vernonia.
This type of teaching, within one’s village, is as old as art itself.
Membership costs $5 a year.
Beadwork is an art of the Hands, the Heart and The Mind. Whatever medium we work in, all craft begins in the eyes of the imagination.
Our Melissa Ellis makes jewelry and friends thru her decor for the home. She Is currently looking for a gallery to represent her and she’s looking for someone to teach. All that’s required is a genuine love for beauty and a willingness to grow and devote your creative self.
Melissa’s devotion is obvious!
