By Paul Daley, USA Today The Pema wood carving series has expanded across a range of mediums and formats, from a book to a DVD.
With the latest edition, the first in a series of six books, the series continues its exploration of woodcarving from a variety of sources, including photographs, documents, drawings and video.
The second edition of the book was released in February 2018.
The first edition was a hardcover, with photos and illustrations.
“We have a strong tradition in the woodcarvering community,” Woodcrafts International CEO Steve Garside said in a release.
“The Pema series gives the reader an intimate understanding of woodcrafting in a wide range of materials and styles.”
Woodcraft has been in the news recently after the death of the legendary Pema, the only female founder of the Woodcraft Society.
The founder’s son, Steve, has launched a crowdfunding campaign to buy the rights to the work.
“With the death and the passing of Pema’s husband, our society is experiencing a huge wave of change and a very serious loss,” the campaign reads.
Please consider helping to fund her legacy through this fundraising effort.” “
It is important that all of us do our part to ensure that Pema and her legacy lives on through generations to come.
Please consider helping to fund her legacy through this fundraising effort.”
Garsides son, Peter, has also launched a fundraising effort.
“Pema was a wonderful artist and craftsman, and she is truly missed,” he said.
“For us as Woodcraftists, this is a great time to support her legacy.
This project is for the benefit of the community at large, to ensure the continuation of her legacy and her work.”
