Traditional Skills from the Kitchen and Garden

I was raised by a Chemical Engineer and an Artist, an interesting dichotomy that led to a wonderful variety of skills in the household rather than conflict. My childhood was filled with projects such as soap-making, knitting, dyeing, home canning, gardening, pottery making, needlework and basketry. I could be found hanging by my knees from tree branches, collecting crayfish from the creek, manning my parents' pottery booth at crafts fairs, or weeding (under duress) in the garden. As I matured, I found that all of those activities I grew up with had lodged in my brain as things I enjoyed, and I have continued with many of them. Before I found my way into Information Technology, one of my first paying job was as a costumed Crafts Demonstrator at a nearby historic house. My home is filled with hand-crafted items, and my gardens are overflowing with herbs, flowers and vegetables. I enjoy sharing knowledge, and preserving the skills that our ancestors needed.

I hold seasonal workshops in my kitchen (by request) on canning or crafting herbal medicines.
