Learn a traditional skill at the Crosshatch Skill Swap

Hey folks, let me tell you about a cool thing that I’m involved with, the second annual Crosshatch Skill Swap at Earthwork Farm on Saturday, June 3rd. It’s a full day of hands-on workshops, followed by a dinner and live music. It takes place at Earthwork Farm near Lake City and offers 16 workshops in four areas:

  • The Green World – wayfinding & orienteering, seed saving, beekeeping, and an herb walk
  • Real Home Ec – farmer cheese, Kombucha, making mead, and bread baking
  • Tinkering – bike repair, tailoring, spoon carving, and a topic to be named later
  • Art – songwriting, singing harmony, using natural dies, and screenprinting

After the dinner, there are FOUR musical treats. The first is a waltz hour featuring amazing string players with knowledgeable waltzers to help you learn a bonus skill – waltzing followed by a concert in the barn host Seth Bernard, Gifts or Creatures, and Heavy Color. Camping is included if you so desire, and there’s a video below with my friend Brad outlining the day. Click for tickets and more information!
