Valerie and Brian Mosher – Shalebrook Handcrafted Soap
Description of Product: Shalebrook Handcrafted soap bars are created in a time honored process. Shalebrook handcrafted soap bars are created here on the Eastern Shore in Moser River, NS. Unlike commercial bars that consist mainly of detergents and chemicals that tend to strip the skin of their natural oils, our high quality ingredients include vegetable-based oils as well as lard and tallow, butters, clays, honey, tussah silk and other skin loving products. The ingredients for each soap batch we make are chosen for the individual properties that they each will pbring to the new bar of soap. Where possible we use local products such as dandelions, maple syrup, bladderwrack and plantago. Other ingredients come from as far away as Africa, Australia and the Dead Sea located between Jordan and Israel. The ingredients in each bar of soap are located on the packaging or on our website at www.shalebrooksoap.com.
Once the desired formula is calculated the soap is produced in one of three ways: hot process, cold process or cold process stove process. The finished soap is then poured into molds and allowed to harden. After coming out of the loaf mold, each bar is hand cut, air dried, cured and hand packaged.
Products: luxury bars, regular bars and specialty bars that are designed for problem skin, facial use and shampoos, and lip balms.
Other Ingredients: beeswax, lanolin, avocado butter, avocado iol, Cocoa butter, mango butter, Castor oil, Rose Hip Oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E oil, Spearmint, Peppermint, Rosemary, Calendula and Chamomile.

Sarah Duncan – Caning
I have been caning for over 10 years. I repair hand woven cane in chairs, tables, canoe seats, privacy screens, etc. Usually this involves replacing the whole surface. I can do new pieces if anyone does wood working and would like something caned. I can also do conversions from commercially pre-woven mat cane to hand woven caning. I can weave the commercial 6 way standard, as well as several antique weave patterns such as daisy chain, spider web, diamond cross and snowflake, to name a few. I can repair medallion chairs. I use new cane for all projects, and I do minor repair (no charge) and prep work as needed. I have my own pricing system, so it generally works out a little more reasonably than the suggested $2 per hole plus supplies.

Gerri Frager – Natural Whorlds Pottery
I have delighted in creating functional pottery pieces for the past 8 years, both handbuilt or wheel-thrown. Making forms that someone would enjoy a drink with, put flowers in, or serve food from is my favourite focus. I love to reflect the natural world in my work through impressions of flowers, grasses, and images of living by the sea. Some pots reflect constellations from our night sky.
As a pediatrician working in pediatric palliative care for 2 decades, without fail – pottery helped me relax and renew. In my now retired from work-life, pottery fills my days, my head and my hands. I hope to express my heart through my work in clay and hope you too, enjoy the results.
