Emily spends much of her time weaving baskets, collecting material to work with, and harvesting, cooking, and experimenting with the local wild foods. After completing her 2014 internship at North House, Emily is living in a cozy yurt in northern Minnesota, and continuing to explore other traditional skills and crafts. Over the last  decade, the search for knowledge and experience has brought her from her home in Minnesota, to both the east and west coasts to learn from many experienced teachers.
