rewilder honoring ancestral skills

i have ain instagram @feralforest where i share behind the scenes crafty beautiful foresty goodness. <3

my shop started as an outlet for random crafts and geek-out moments, and has evolved to meet more closely my dreams for my life. while i initially offered little critters made out of wire and simple books, i now offer photography of wild places, herbal medicines that i wild craft from the forests, baskets made from respectfully harvested trees (for firewood or building), adornment made from found and reclaimed items, and other magical delights that arise in the process of living wild. as i'm 'going mobile' for the foreseeable future, many of my larger and bulkier offerings are taking a back seat to things that i can sell quickly as i move from place to place.

the money that i make with this shop supports my ability to live away from town. i'm strongly anti-civilization and working toward involving capitalism less and less in my life, and making money from hand crafts instead of holding down normal jobs is much healthier for me as a creature. i exist at several intersections of privilege, and pass on a good portion of my income in the form of reparations to black people, land payments to Indigenous folks whose land i'm occupying, and donations to QTBIPOC (Queer & Trans Black, Indigenous, & People of Color).

    Owner, Maker, I Do All The Things

    i'm a stubborn idealist foaming feral forests on colonized land with my trusty pup who keeps me company while harvesting herbs and crafting the magics.

    Mover & Shaker

    frances is my dogged companion. she gets very upset if i have a boring day, and is a great motivator who gets me up and outdoors harvesting. she's not such a big fan when i sit around inside crafting all day, but still lovingly keeps me company.

i like to make useful and beautiful things out of sustainable, recycled, and found materials. i will re-purpose anything i can find - from roadkill animals to bits of bark, flowers and ferns, and some of the many waste stream items of civilization. i honor and thank every item i harvest, and offer them with love to folks who will treasure them.
