This week's featured artists are basketmaker Kadey Ambrose and Tom Zimmer of Greenman Forge!

You won't want to miss this double feature at The Workshop! Kadey is a basketmaker who makes both functional and sculptural baskets from wild harvested plants and scavenged post-consumer materials. She'll be demonstrating several weaving techniques, as well as materials preparation for a handful of basketry plants found in the Tanana Valley, including Birch and Cattails.

Kadey will be offering drop-in workshops in simple basketry forms that can be completed in 15 minutes to 1 hour, and/or a larger community project that visitors will be invited to contribute to!

Tom is a blacksmith and woodworker who offers a variety of hands-on workshops at Greenman Forge & Turnery at Calypso Farm. Learn to forge! Tom will be offering hands-on blacksmithing demos throughout the weekend!

Baskets (backpacks, berry baskets, etc) and handcrafted iron goods will be available for purchase.
