Clear Creek History Park Features Artisans in the Park

New this year, Golden History Museums will highlight art forms that have stood the test of time.
Adjacent to the Festival, Clear Creek History Park will host Artisans in the Park, where Festival-goers can
step back in time and watch demonstrations of traditional crafts including, leather tooling and spinning,
and can even purchase these works on the spot.

Artisans in the Park will feature art work and demonstrations from blacksmith Steve Hildred, who will create
beautiful works of art from iron; Pat Martinek, a fiber artist who creates clothing and jewelry using raw fiber
from everything from bison to dogs; Fritz Anders, a wood artist who uses wood burns, color stains and

finishes to create beautiful works of art; and leather tooler Bruce Behrens, who is a frequent demonstrator
at the Park.  Golden’s Recycled Lamb Yarn Store will set up in the Pearce Cabin, where they will offer
spinning and weaving demonstrations.

Artisans in the Park will run the same hours as the Festival.
