Steve Brown



Steve has been making his living by woodworking in one form or another since 1969, and has concentrated a large portion of those efforts in the field of Northwest Coast art, both as a carver and as a teacher.

He has taught classes in traditional carving since 1975, and has worked in Native and non-Native communities in Southeast Alaska and Washington State. Teaching venues have included the Totem Heritage Center in Ketchikan, Alaska, the University of Alaska/Juneau and Sitka, the villages of Hoonah, Craig, Wrangell, Metlakatla, and Kake, Alaska, the Shuswap School of Woodcarving, and the Longhouse at the Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington.

Steve has participated in extensive totem pole carving projects in Wrangell, Alaska, and for the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe in Washington. Steve enjoys teaching carving and toolmaking, and sharing his knowledge and experience in this field.
