Mary Tripoli

Grand Marais, MN USA
North House Folk School photo of instructor, Mary Tripoli

Mary (she/her) grew up in a small town in southwestern Pennsylvania, but has been enjoying life in the Pacific Northwest for the last 20 years. After finishing a corporate career, she discovered green wood carving in 2014 and has not gone more than a few days without carving or turning something—a spoon, a spatula or bowl! She is part of a thriving carving community based at Pratt Fine Arts in Seattle, WA. 

A 2021 North House Intern alum, Mary is thrilled to continue her craft practice in Grand Marais. She's looking forward to getting to know her ADP cohort and experiencing her first proper north woods winter. Mary plans to continue greenwood carving, learn new pole lathe turning techniques and forms, and take a deeper dive into chairmaking.
