JASON HOVATTER - BOOT MAKER
As far back as he can remember, Jason has been wondering how things worked before our modern age of convenience and forgetfulness. As he traveled the country via foot and train hopping, he learned various leather working skills and apprenticed with a master shoemaker in southern Oregon. He now runs his own custom shoemaking business, traveling to medieval re-enactments across the Western US, and teaching both period and modern styles and leaving a growing army of cobblers and cordwainers in his wake. http://laughingcrowe.com
CODY MYERS - BLACKSMITH
Growing up on a farm in the north woods where his parents ran a timber framing business and gathered and sold maple syrup, Cody has always led a hands-on lifestyle. As a blacksmith, he apprenticed under David Hanson at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, MN, and has since become an assistant blacksmith instructor at the school. Striving to keep the fire of an ancient world in modern times, attempting to maintain a connection to the sources of things, bringing hammer to hand and steel to anvil, Cody founded the company Wolf Heart and hopes to continue his art and passion for the rest of his years.
