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
