Erin was a 2015 Craft Education Intern at North House and loves being immersed in the world of craft and the rhythms of North Shore life. At North House she celebrated her passions for food, Scandinavian craft, and the Swedish language while baking up storms of Swedish cinnamon rolls and sharing the fika (Swedish coffee break) gospel. Between studying in Stockholm, Sweden, traveling around the world with the international Slow Food movement, and chatting up regulars at her family’s bakery in South Minneapolis, she has learned the joys of sharing community and worldviews over a good meal. She always looks forward to hanging out at the harbor side bread oven and convincing anyone who will listen that baking is really not that hard.
