Gelsomina Ritter- Malferrari

Here is a taste of the instructors and classes we will have at the gathering! Stay tuned for updates.


Living and raising her family on a 20 acre homestead, near Boulder, Colorado, Gelsomina has dedicated her life to feeding her family with the most nourishing food possible, raising her children to be connected to the earth, and creating and making things with her hands. She milks the family cow, makes baskets, gardens passionately, sings, and teaches primitive skills at the Laughing Coyote Project.


Saami Bags

These beautiful pouches come from the Saami reindeer herders of Scandinavia.
We will be working with brain tan and bark tanned deer skins and fish skins to sew a colorful and useful bag.
