About Kate:

Educator, jeweler and tool maven Kate Wolf has three loves: carving wax, designing tools and teaching. One is meditative and intuitive, the second exhilarating. And teaching? Absolutely "divine." That "student/teacher interaction and enthusiasm is inspiring," she says, especially when she has a classroom full of different skill levels and reasons for embarking on wax-carving and jewelry-making. Kate has been carving wax and making jewelry for 35 years and teaching for more than 23 years. She teaches in workshops all over the U.S. and Canada and at her school in Portland, Maine.
