Cultural Corner Spotlight: Toshika Hino
March's Cultural Corner Spotlight at the Hastings Highlands Public Library is woodworking artist, Toshika Hino.
For almost ten years now Toshika Hino has been woodworking in his small, off-the-grid workshop in Lake St. Peter. He began by carving spoons with only a knife and gouge and ever since, has essayed to improve his craftsmanship and design skills. In addition to trees Toshi loves hand cut joinery, classic designs and Japanese aesthetics.
