To give people a hand-crafted item to remind them of the craftsmanship of the past, the artists and creators at Prairie PastTimes offer something to behold, touch, see, enjoy, hear, use, and wear.
The members of Prairie PastTimes have a passion for the quality and process of making things with their hands. They can take a block of wood, a sheet of glass, a piece of cold steel, an old lump of clay, a single musical note, a scene on the prairie, a part of a thread, a bit of cloth, and turn it into something you can love and treasure.
The amount of energy, thought, work, and skill honed over time that goes into each piece represents the artist’s love of life and their place, the Flint Hills. The process they follow is slow and meticulous, more reminiscent of past times.
In our mass-produced world, you can buck the trends and take home a unique work of beauty connected to a beautiful place and designed by a natural person with a creative heart and skilled, caring hands.
