“We are excited to be involved in the Old Mill Museum’s Millfest,” said Eleanor Heimbaugh, Director of Swedish Crafts and Assistant Professor of Ceramics and Sculpture. “The Swedish Crafts team will be on hand to show how we make Bethany bowls and brooms and share the tradition of creating handmade items.”
