White Salmon Studio

WildCraft began in our rural studio, in the hills above White Salmon, WA in the summer of 2013. The goal was to create a space where interdisciplinary practices could live side by side, informing and expanding the approach to each study.

In the spring of 2018, we moved into downtown White Salmon, to the historic Pioneer Building (216 E Jewett Blvd). From this shared space, we offer weekend workshops in craft, textiles, Native art and herbal medicine. We use this studio as a starting place for many of our foraging workshops, wildflower walks and place-based expeditions.
