John Evans, a seasonal employee at Peer Amid Beads, works on a killer whale plaque outside the Front Street store on Wednesday. Evans, who has been carving for about 20 years, has been working mostly on plaques, paddles, rattles and halibut hooks but said he is looking forward to taking classes on carving more three dimensional objects like totem poles, miniature canoes and masks.
