Sponsored in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts, demonstrators include two blacksmiths, wood carvers, potters and more. Wool and flax spinning, candle-making, 1800-style camp cooking, seed saving, sewing, and flint-knapping will also be demonstrated. How would you carve a chair or make a tin cup? Both will be presented during the two-day festival located at Laura’s birth site, Pepin, Wisconsin.
Quilting and other activities are featured at the Cabin wayside seven miles north of Pepin. Located on Highway 35 in western Wisconsin, the festival is a celebration of Laura’s contribution to history, literature, education, and entertainment.
