18 Dec Raleigh Campbell
Raleigh has a background of working with her hands, designing, and creating beautiful things. At 18, she joined her mother in a jewelry business. Given skills, guidance, and a freedom to create through school and mentors led her to a life work of working with her hands. Her first spoon was carved at an Art of Mentoring in 2013. “Many thought I was crazy that I wanted to become a professional spoon carver!” she says, but since March of 2018 her focus has been to spend as much time with professional Green Woodworkers as possible. Much of that year was spent living in the UK to learn from the masters. Now back in Sonoma County she runs Hearth Folk School with Nick Lahaise and does woodwork in their workshop and around the state.
