Kathy and Eric Schrader's Profile
Hi folks! We're Kathy and Eric, the husband and wife team who create the wares found in The Artisan Workshop. Our tagline is "From Fine Art to Folk Art" because Kathy has studied art and pursues classes while Eric is more of a putterer.
We love creating items with materials we find around our rural home. Our many gardens and trees provide us with both inspiration and materials for our wares. In the summer and fall our Rice Bags that Kathy makes are filled with homegrown and dried lavender that is as aromatic as the lavender patch itself. The hand-carved figures are created by Eric with hand tools and an adventurous spirit.
The Artisan Workshop is a family affair, our daughter Katie runs this shop (as well as her own wildnotions.etsy.com) for us so that we can concentrate on making the best quality and unique items.
