Woodcarving class, Wellington Technical School, 1897

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries woodcarving was a popular craft medium for women. Tuition was available at technical schools and female graduates used their skills in the home after they had married, or in business. This class of 1897 at Wellington Technical School was dominated by women – only one male student is visible.
