Jolie Karno is a skilled woodturner and accomplished instructor at Techshop in San Francisco and The Crucible in Oakland. She loves teaching, and has introduced scores of people to fine woodworking. She is the Director at The Lower 48, a maker space in Oakland with the mission to welcome more people, especially more women and people of color, to the joy of turning wood into beautiful objects. Jolie is known for her contagious enthusiasm about all this wooden and loves to turn, teach, and play with animals.
I feel the strongest connection to functional art. My spoon carving is the purest expression of this aesthetic, but I try to imbue all my functional work with beauty. As a teacher I think it is important to share my love and enthusiasm for making objects of use and meaning.
