Andrew Glazebrook (Red Deer County) is an Alberta artist who spent most of his youth in the hamlet of Rosebud, Alberta. A self-taught woodworker, Andrew executes every part of the process; from choosing and felling trees in his neighbouring forest, to creating designs best suited for the wood and through to the finishing of the piece be it decorative or functional. It is through this complex process that Andrew finds satisfaction and
a connection to an art that can be both traced over 4000 years and is, yet, ever changing.

Andrew’s diversity and proficiency is evident in the array of objects he turns. Inspired by craftsmanship of any kind, Andrew draws satisfaction from being a maker of objects which others can touch, feel and cherish. Andrew is recognized for both his craftsmanship and his willingness to share his knowledge with others. Andrew has taught in over 45 schools, colleges, and universities and currently offers offers various classes at his well equipped studio in Red Deer County.
