Instructor

Avelino Samuel is a native of St. John, Virgin Islands who is retired from teaching and is now a full-time woodturner. He earned his BS in Industrial Arts Education from North Carolina A&T State University and an MS in Industrial Education from Eastern Michigan University. Samuel conducts workshops at Arrowmont and other craft schools.

I try to create objects that showcase the beauty of wood through different shapes, finishes, and surfaces. Sometimes this is experienced by allowing the material to be the dominant voice. In other instances, the material (wood) is worked to accent its character. This may take the form of carving, burning, or coloring … all in an effort to create an object that appeals to the eye and tactile senses.
