The Port Townsend School of Woodworking is committed to preserving all the traditions of woodworking. We're expecially proud to help keep the orginal form of Woodworking in the Pacific North West alive.
The Tribal / First Nations people of the Pacific North West have stunning legacy of working with wood from the longhouse and guardian poles on Haida Gwaii, through preserved artifacts of the Makah at Neah Bay to the thriving communities of carvers around the Salish Sea.
NW Coast Arts Program
The Port Townsend School of Woodworking is delighted to have Steve Brown as a member of our faculty. Steve brings a wealth of experience in Traditional NW Coast Carving and Art. In the 1980's Steve worked with the Tlingit nation in Southeastern Alaska to restore and replace many totem poles and more recently he worked as the Associate Curator for the Native American collection at the Seattle Art Museum.
One of our goals is to make the Port Townsend School of Woodworking a world class platform for all forms of woodworking . We welcome other carvers to teach their traditional techniques and interpretations. Feel free to contact us if you would like to consider teaching at the School.
