    Wood turner and sculptor Beth Ireland spent a year traveling across the United States in a van equipped with a mini workshop and a personal living space; Jenn Moller collaborated with digital support. Ireland stopped at schools and centers, in small towns and big ones, places urban and rural, covering 25,000 miles and teaching over two thousand people how to turn wood. She has written, “I was just going to teach as many people as I could how to make a simple wooden object. It became so much more.” Ireland and Moller then traveled to Guatemala, teaching a small village to make windows, doors and household items out of wood. Beth Ireland will speak about what she has learned on the road.

    The talk will be followed by a weekend turning workshop informed by her travels.
