Pioneer life would have been near impossible without a skilled black-
smith living in their area. Blacksmith's made a wide range of needed
tools, barrel hoops, etc.

The blacksmith tries out a pair of tomahawks he made. This set was
made for throwing.
Ozark Folk Center weaving

Photo 23

During cold winter months pioneer women spent long hours spinning the
cotton their families had grown over the summer. They spun the cotton
into threads, then spent many hours weaving fabrics for making the
family's clothing.

When you learn what it takes to make a simple oak basket you'll never
look at baskets the same way again. These tough baskets wear like
iron. The maker seeks out just the right trees, then spends many days
treating, shaving, and shaping the straps. The actual weaving is the
easy part. Over the decades basket making evolved into art.
