Join us at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center on October 1st from 1-5 pm for an afternoon of appreciating our local artisans! From soapmaking and spinning to woodcarving and weaving, meet local folks who practice old crafts. There will be a wide variety of hands on activities, including opportunities to try your hand at the presented crafts.
Over the last few years, the KWEC has seen great interest in the quarterly Craft Workshop Series. Past workshops have included papermaking, basket weaving, cold process soapmaking, and even dyeing yarn with plants found in our area. With so many people excited about learning hands on crafts, a craft festival featuring local artisans was a natural next step.
We'd love to see you on October 1st, from 1-5 pm. Spend an hour with us, or stay the whole afternoon learning about these historic arts. For more information about this FREE event, call the KWEC at 1-877-243-9268.
