bjudt aka W.F. (Bill) Judt, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

W.F. (Bill) Judt has been carving for over 30 years, starting with an adult night school course offered by the Winnipeg School Board in 1975. Mostly self-taught, he carved for twenty years in the relative isolation of northern Alberta. Because of the isolation his style of carving is quite different from that of carvers elsewhere. He specializes in relief carving (carving pictures in wood) which he executes in panels that are 2” thick or less. Most of his carvings are undertaken on a commission basis, and are purchased by private families, businesses, corporations, and the like. Biblical themes are his favorite.

Bill currently resides in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where he maintains a lively teaching studio, writes carving books and works on commission pieces. Two weeks of intensive workshops are available at his studio in late May and early June.

Bill is married to Deborah (educator), and has two adult sons, Aaron (journeyman auto technician) and Alec (Officer, Canadian Forces, Edmonton). They have two dogs, Pepper and Timmy.

One of Bill’s passions is teaching the Bible. For the past decade, he and Debbie have led a Sunday morning adult bible study at their church.

In the summer, Bill and Deb enjoy the family cabin at Turtle Lake in northern Saskatchewan, where they relax and entertain family and friends.
