Monthly featured Artist

Donna Stewart

My love of working with wood began at the age of 10 when the barn on our family farm burned down. That summer my father built a new one and I was his helper. Hammering nails, the smell of the wood, the whole experience stayed with me. Although I tried a few small projects, it was not until retirement that I got serious about working with wood. That began when the small community I live in gave me a lathe as a retirement gift. Training involved a day with Herman deVries where he showed me the basics. (I took notes and still refer to them). As a member of WAM one of first lessons I learned was how much I don’t know. Every meeting helps change that. Woodturning is my relaxation, my challenge, and my passion.

WAM is proud to honour Donna as our featured artist. She is a long time member and always brings creative and interesting work to show us.
