Solar Woodcuts — Wood
Ron Tremback and Patti Robertson have designed and created fretwork full time since 1992. They are unique in Canada in that they work full time at their craft. As well as making the more traditional fretwork subjects such as, wildlife and silhouettes, they are well known for their more esoteric subjects, such as, Celtic designs and ancient symbolism.
Ron sets up, saws, and contributes to the design process. Ron has been an artisan for more than 40 years, making everything from moccasins to houses and cabins. His love of fine detail and intricate designs led him to become a professional fretwork craftsman 25 years ago.
In addition to the wood burning, Patti draws the patterns, creating an eclectic mix of images to produce their 450 current designs. Patti has more than 35 years experience as an artisan creating many different kinds of arts and crafts.
Ron will be demonstrating his art at the Festival.
