As you know if you have been following along, we traveled up to Canada to teach Spoon Carving classes in Tofino and Victoria. I had the most amazing time in both cities, all of my students were so amazing and creative. The first class in Tofino was at Merge Collective, the owners Victoria and Laurie were so sweet! They just opened their shop and it is filled with amazing designers all over North America. I couldn't have been more impressed with their organization in putting the class together. Both ladies are makers as well and had the studio in the back, Victoria owns, Good Prospects a leather goods company and Laurie designs lingerie and jewelry.
I really enjoyed my class and had some awesome ladies who even traveled from neighboring cities a couple hours away to attend! Everyone did an amazing job and I was impressed with the level of detail of each spoon. Victoria had snacks and drinks available for everyone to have and even got sandwiches from the local butcher Picnic Charcuterie.
