Guthrie is full of artisans and craftspersons and some of them have organized a new event for the first Saturdays of the month. Home Sweet Home on the Range owner Pat Taylor wrote an article for us a few months ago promising something special, and she hasn’t disappointed. This date was chosen to coincide with Red Brick Nights.
“We hope that people will come spend all day in Guthrie discovering all that we have to offer and then stay for the concert!” said Cheri French, owner of Oklahoma Mini Mill.
The term “maker” is not new and refers to the combining of traditional artisans with the tech that is so prevalent in our world today. “’Maker’ is very on-trend right now and is a movement that reaches far beyond Guthrie,” Keely Stuever-Northup, owner of SWAK, shared.
Stay tuned for more info from our Maker Community.
Oklahoma Mini Mill - 1324 N Wentz St. 11 - 4
In coordination with Red Brick Nights, several Guthrie artists will be offering Saturday "Make & Take" classes (see links below). Oklahoma Mini Mill will be hosting the Guthrie Hand Spinners group. If you are a spinner, bring your wheel or spindle and drop in between 11 am and 4 pm. If you are interested in spinning, come watch and learn, or pick up a drop spindle and (literally) give it a whirl!
This is a FREE event for all!
We will also be offering tours of our fiber processing mill - the only one in Oklahoma!
