What we have been doing:

The Artisan Guild of Southern Illinois has been very busy in 2016.  We planned a theme for our Heritage Arts meeting: The Bread Basket.  We made many items using many different heritage arts.  These items included making strawberry jelly, forging condiment spoons, while we learned some blacksmithing skills, weaving a basket for our bread, and of course, making our own bread.  We had such a good time this past year, and we look forward to working on our next project: The Artists Book.
