Emily spends much of her time weaving baskets; collecting material; and harvesting, cooking, and experimenting with local, wild foods. After completing her 2014 internship at North House, Emily moved to a cozy yurt in northern Minnesota, and continues 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.
