The instructor:

Timothy 'Bjorn' Jones is best known for his wooden sculptures portraying pre-Christian folk tales, legends and ancient religion from Europe. He uses these figures to take aim at colonialist and monotheistic world-views which have been uncritically assimilated, while also reframing how we interact with trees in our industrialized society. Bjorn's work has been featured on CBC News, CTV News, local newspapers and international publications. His most recent exhibitions include catalogued shows at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Bjorn has studied at the University of New Brunswick, the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design and Oulton College. He is also a part time instructor at NBCCD.
