Aspiring Homesteader, The Homestead Atlanta
Kimberly Coburn is a proud ginger, a jack of all trades and master of none, has more ongoing craft endeavors than any one person should, treats her kitchen like an episode of Mr. Wizard, and does her best to help facilitate Atlantans learning the skills they need to be more self-reliant by wrangling the Homestead Atlanta’s curriculum. She’s one of the most curious people you’ll ever meet and feels a little awkward writing descriptions of herself.
7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living

“I’m that annoying friend that can’t just sit and watch a movie, I knit and watch a movie. But I also make really awesome homemade gifts for everybody so you know– they can only get so mad about it.”
When you hear the word “homestead” what do you think of? I think of the old west in the US of A’s past, of folk heading out into the unknown with just their wits and wares and know-how. In 7(ish?) Lessons in Handmade Living from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Volume 28, speaker Kimberly Coburn would do just fine out there on her own given that she is helping revive the hand-me-down knowledge that was once passed from generation to generation but has somehow stopped now. Sewing, smithy work, growing food, glass making, and more! Tune in to hear Kimberly make the case for bringing back the “old knowledge”!
