It was an absolute thrill to be selected as one of the first three artisans (and all of us woman!) to participate in Colonial Williamsburg’s new artisan exchange, going by the name Craft & Forge! We all met and spent several days on the Colonial Williamsburg campus, working with their on-site makers, builders, historians, and artisans as well as mingling together and discussing our trades.
I went with Julia, one of my friends who is also an industrial designer and who designs my cookware so it can be read by a CNC machine and tools built to match the plan! We had a total blast – even spending one night on the Ghost Tour! I am so excited to be part of this and know it’s going to be an ongoing thing both for me and future artisans who join in!
In the meantime, enjoy this quick 3 minute video and write-up in House Beautiful to learn all about the who, what, and why! So many fun tools and visuals abound!
