Nora Hall - Famous Oregon Carver
For the Zoom link, click here
Dutch-born Nora Hall taught carving for fifty years, spent a decade of her later career in Oregon, and passed away in 2011 at age 88. She taught locally and nationally, produced nine training videos with her carver-son Wendell, and was a guest on Roy Underhill's Woodwright Shop PBS TV program. Nora was a master classical carver who learned from her father, also a master carver. Her adult daughter Renee, now lives in Idaho and continues to run the website norahall.com, a wonderful resource.
Nora was famous as well as notable, but many now don't recognize her name or know the resources she left behind. This Zoom program will feature two short but rarely seen videos, one produced by Gary Rogowski of Portland, as well as a few excerpts from her video training series. We'll show-n-tell the resources in our club library, and have some comments from Jeff Hilber, who worked on a big Lincoln City project with her.
Notable Oregon carvers are those distinguished by their volume and quality of work, teaching, publications, videos, or leadership. Their legacy enriches us today. While Leroy Setziol is the most often recognized, there are dozens and dozens more. Who else can you name (hints here)?
