Music on October 15 by Josh Ruebeck and Briannon Carlsen

Josh Ruebeck.smJosh Ruebeck is a Carleton College student with a love and appreciation for folk music that belies his youth. A musician since he was 7 years old, Josh gravitated to the music of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan because of the stories told in those songs. The music inspired him to learn to play the guitar, the cello, and develop his voice into a fine instrument as well. He and fellow Carleton student Briannon Carlsen will be sharing their favorite folk songs on Saturday at Riverwalk Market Fair.

will-moss-dolls-6-11-2016Will Moss is a self-taught artist who learned to sew in 2009 and has been making strange and unusual art dolls ever since.  He says,

“I love the idea of bringing something to life that can affect a person in different ways, and doll making is a perfect way for me to do that.  There’s something behind the eyes and thin layer of fabric that’s not just stuffing.will-moss-dolls-2-6-11-2016  Dolls can seem real, make you feel something—a touch of melancholy, joy, give you a good fright, or perhaps be a good friend.”

Featured Farmers’ Market Vendor Wheelie Awesome Natural Products

Wheelie.2015-08-15.smWynne Turner began making soaps when she discovered that one of her children was sick—and it wasn’t genetic, it was environmental.  She began exploring ways to reduce toxins in their home environment and in their personal care products.  An avid baker, Wynne decided that making soap was akin to baking—measure and mix—and has been exploring new soap and body care product-making techniques using natural and organic ingredients ever since.  wheelie-6-11-2016She started selling her products in her husband’s Rosemount bicycle shop (hence the name, Wheelie) and finds soap making a creative outlet and a change of pace from her regular job in legal compliance.  Now also doing custom orders, Wynne is working with bed & breakfasts to supply their soaps.

shirley-jones-9-2016As an artist and newly retired St. Paul art teacher, Shirley Jones brings not only creativity and ability to her art, but also brings intent to everything she makes.  In a nod to jewelry traditionally made by Berber nomads from found objects, Shirley makes Berber necklaces that have a randomness to them.  Her Red Pepper Jewelry evokes the stories of escaped slaves who carried red pepper to mask their scent from dogs.  Stop by her booth to hear the stories that inspired her African Angels, Robin Island jewelry, and more.

shirley-jones-9-3-2016A skilled jeweler, Shirley uses gemstones, found objects, and brass in her jewelry, hand making her bezels and settings, cutting and filing metal, and soldering pieces.
