About Carol Russell:

Carol has over 25 years experience as a furniture maker, antique restorer and teacher. Carol’s on-going love for timber led her to hand carving smaller objects like wooden spoons and knives, wooden vessels and milking stools. Based in Queensland, Carol travels Australia-wide teaching carving workshops. Carol regularly conducts a range of different workshops at artisan. Carol’s stunning work has been exhibited widely, including in artisan’s Marketplace exhibition curated by Melinda Gagen.
