Root Cellar, Winnipeg, MB: Wood
Karen is a graduate of University of Manitoba’s Environmental Design program. After university she gained over six years of woodworking experience at Wood Anchor, a local reclaimed furniture and custom design/build shop and has since become a self taught wood turner. Her intention is always to allow the material to speak first, followed by the impression of the tool and the hand to reveal both form and function. Karen is interested in the roles of collaboration and craft in a modern society. She is currently spearheading Root Cellar: a collective and modern multidisciplinary guild.
