So thrilled we are able to gather in small groups again outdoors and do this in person.
As an organization with a motto- how do we be makers without first being consumers-, selling sticks feels very weird indeed. However, these are weird times we are living in, so here we are, hosting our first ever makers market.
Normally, we have stewardship sessions that allow people to access some of the plants we are tending. Or, we have in person workshops that use the fibre and dyes from the gardens, and a small materials fee is budgeted into the workshop cost. This helps EartHand with some of our base operating costs, and keeps the maker materials flowing out into the community.
Because of the pandemic, we have not been able to gather in groups for either land tending or skill sharing. We have a surplus of maker-ready plant materials and a loss of revenue, so it is sales-by-donation time!
retted flax straw, nettles, milkweed, dogbane, ash and willow rods, other weaving fibres and raw wool and dye plant seeds.
Shopping requires a ticket to keep our numbers small. please refer to the instructions on the tickets regarding community health and safety while on site for the sale.
