Over the weeks leading upto our annual handmade holiday craft sale, "A Little Bird Told Me", on Sat, Dec 10, we are highlighting each one of the participating vendors. Here is a short interview with Trevor Ewert from Once Upon A Tree:
Little City Farm: Describe the products you will have at the Little Bird Sale?
Once Upon A Tree: Food grade salad and fruit bowls and cutting/serving boards in various sizes.
Little City Farm: How did you learn this craft?
Once Upon A Tree: I've been involved in woodworking for over 15 years as a violin bowmaker and am now making wooden objects for a wider audience.
Little City Farm: What inspires your craft?
Once Upon A Tree: The materials I use are really the inspiration for the craft. Domestic local hardwoods and burls present some of the most highly figured and beautiful wood that can be obtained anywhere.
Little City Farm: Describe how your craft is eco-friendly?
Once Upon A Tree: All of my bowls and boards are made from domestic species that have grown no further than 50 miles from here. Much of the wood is salvaged from roadside work done by hydro or roads crews, and the rest is purchased from firewood/pallet operations.
Little City Farm: Do you have favourite music to listen to while you craft?
Once Upon A Tree: Too noisy to listen to music with the machine tools running.
Little City Farm: Do you have a website/blog/online store?
