Carving at Queensbury Elementary School

North Vancouver, B.C.
PAC at Queensbury was looking for a large art project that could involve all ages, so that every student could feel part of it. Carving was chosen because it was a unique opportunity and materials would be donated.

History of the Wood

Root came (discounted) from O'Briens Log Sort, Queen Charlotte Islands. It was barged to Vancouver and delivered (at no charge) by O'Briens Log Sort.

Root saved from becoming wood chips.
