Hello! I grew up in the hills of West Virginia and have been making things for as long as I can remember. I like to think of myself as a jack of all trades, but some of my favorite are: farmer, hide tanner, butcher, cook, and artist.
As part of the primitive skills community (dedicated to the revival and practice of old arts such as blacksmithing, archery, leather work and more), I love seeing people practicing and keeping their trades alive.
I've sat in many trade circles at festivals, it's so exciting to see this model replicated online with an even greater range of possibilities!
