After the Seedswap and Barter we will share a Chili Dinner by donation and then celebrate with dancing to great live music by “Whitewing”!  Join us.

The Cascadia Skillshare and Barter Faire has been having a fall campout for the last 7 years. It has been a wonderful event every time, with amazing presenters and sharings. But we have faced rain and storms, winds of 70mph and weather that has made us “throw in the towel” for a September campout.  So we are combining it now with the indoor wintertime Seedswap that is organized by mostly the same folks.  This will be the first round of trying this.  It could expand to be many more workshops. Please feel encouraged to join our all volunteer organizing group. We are friendly and fun.

See below all the fun we have had at past Skillshares.

Goals: Skillsharing is about teaching and learning all kinds of useful, handy, and practical skills. Years ago, lots of people knew how to repair and sharpen tools, make a braided rug, raise chickens, make soap, build a fence, make simple toys, and much more. The goals of the Faire are to help revive lost skills, showcase some new ones, and provide a place where all of us can come learn from folks in the community with experience in these crafts and trades. We welcome people from all walks of life – the more diversity in those who present and attend, the more we can learn from each other!

The “Barter” portion of the Faire is to allow folks to trade items (think hand crafted, home made, wild harvested, self cultivated, tools, building materials/supplies) that they have a surplus of, or do not need, for things they are in need of.

At the Faire you will find:

  • Hourly & on-going SkillShares (presentations/workshops/classes)
  • Music
  • Bartering
  • Fun and welcoming people from all walks of life!

Admission: $10   Children under 12 Free
