"Share your skills – Trade your wares”
Our 2nd Annual Whatcom Skillshare Faire will be at: Hovander Homestead Park, Ferndale
The Whatcom SkillShare Faire – a fun festival about teaching and learning all kinds of useful, handy, and practical skills. Years ago, lots of people knew how to repair and sharpen tools, make a braided rug, raise chickens, make soap, build a fence, make simple toys, and much more.
The goal of SkillShare is to help revive those skills, showcase some new ones, and provide a place where all of us can come learn from people more experienced in these crafts and trades.
If you have a skill to share, you want to know how you can sign up to be a vendor, you would like to participate as a musician or entertainer, or you want to step up as a sponsor or volunteer, or if you just have some questions, you can email us at whatcomskillIsharefaire@gmail.com
If you live in the Samish Watershed and have an event you would like to post, send info. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
