The Berri Patch Woodcrafts

Was imagined, inspired and created in my home in Black Diamond, Alberta.
After the arrival of my two youngest and my hankering to create with what we had, making kitchen boards with our forever growing woodpile seemed to make the most sense.
   Throughout the past few years my perception of this business has changed and grown.  For me it
 is about connection, pushing myself creatively and making a piece that becomes cherished and useful. 

    The curious part is always learning new and traditional techniques which shows in the unique character of my work.
     For the past few years learning spoon carving has shown me the love, I now have for hand tools.  As my part in wood carving evolves I am veering away from power tools and connecting with the blank wood on a different level.  Now feeling more of a connection with working with the wood instead of against.

my most favourite part of wood work, aside from the process, is hearing stories of how each piece has reached it's rightful keeper.

A bit about

BERRI-LYNN - WOODWORKER

     11 years ago, a dream brought me across Canada to Calgary, Alberta.   A builder is what I learned to be and soon after I became the maker, I was meant to be.   Learning and creating HAS to be a part of my day. As all you makers (of music, art and function) out there know, without creating, we are kind of floating around, off balance, trying to find our next fix of inspiration.  This creative hankering lead me to learning traditional skills, a quest that never ends.   

     The more adventures into the mountains, the closer I wanted to live. The beautiful small town of Black Diamond soon became my home, where my community and I are continually crafting a life with more meaning. Here I found and created a passion for woodworking, my amazing family and a community of diverse creative creatures alike.

Little-did-I-know this was a practice that had consumed me for a long time and now a lot of pieces are fitting together.  Learning and creating HAS to be a part of my day. As all you makers (of music, art and function) out there know, without creating, we are kind of floating around, off balance, trying to find our next fix of inspiration.  This creative hankering lead me to learning traditional skills, a quest that never ends.
