This workshop is lead by Mary Baker and Cindy Wilson.

This is a FREE event presented by ArtCentral Spearfish. All materials are included. Recommended for ages 15 and up. Younger children may attend but must be accompanied by an adult.

About the Artists

 Mary Baker was born and raised 20 minutes north of San Francisco. She was raised by a family immersed in the liberal arts. Her mother was an art appreciator and her father was a lover of art and history.

At the time Mary went to school, as a baby boomer, many new schools were built and there was great stock set in schooling children well and fully. Mary always enjoyed the many field trips to museums, zoos, historical sites, and beaches.

Even as a young child Mary immersed herself in trying many different fields of arts and crafts. She especially, to the frustration of her mother, loved picking up objects and using them in “found object art.” At that time she received a rock tumbler as a gift, which sparked a focused interest in rocks.
In a brand new high school, in an art department stocked with anything and everything, Mary was introduced to ceramics, printmaking, spinning fiber, painting, and weaving. This was where she developed the sense that three-dimensional arts and crafts were her forte.

Since school, Mary and her husband have raised two men in Spearfish. Once the children were old enough to fend more for themselves Mary was able to continue her dabbling in whatever crafts found their way to her. At this time she focuses on fiber, spinning, and knitting, and polishing local rocks to use in jewelry and home decoration.

Mary can be found most Saturday mornings in the summer at the Spearfish Farmers Market where she sells her polished rocks and jewelry.
