Ketchikan, AK - Bill Holm, a Seattle-based expert in Northwest
Coast Native art, recently came to Ketchikan to teach two classes
at the Totem Heritage Center. He taught Advanced Northwest Coast
Design, as well as an advanced carving class in which the students
carved canoe-form feast bowls. 27 students, including some of
Ketchikan's most accomplished carvers, signed up for the classes.
Carvers came from as far away as Vermont and Arizona to participate.
