Come to the SkillShare Faire! (265)


Join the fun at the 2013 Whatcom SkillShare Faire! Make fire by friction. Thresh seeds with a 100-year-old pedal-powered machine. Learn to card, spin and weave. Make a rocket stove. In this extravaganza of sharing, residents teach and learn all kinds of useful, practical skills — like making soap, sharpening tools, and raising chickens. “Share your Skills, Trade your Wares.” Organizers from Transition Whatcom, near Bellingham, Washington, are reviving old skills and showcasing new ones in a festive event including local music, local food, and activities for children.
