Artisan Workshops

Have you always wanted to carve your own paddle? Make a crooked knife? Work with birch bark? Felting? Bookbinding? You should take a workshop!

Spend a day, or two, learning unique skills, meeting new people, and working with your hands. You’ll leave the workshop feeling proud of your finished product, and inspired from a day of making something. You’ll have a new appreciation for your own creativity and talents – things you might not have known you had!
