Making It: Violet Bear Allen, Ann Cannon Woodbury, and Angela Brown

Utah has a deep history of crafting and DIY spirit. This episode digs into that spirit as we highlight three women who brought it to life: Violet Bear Allen, an elder in the Skull Valley Band of Goshute who was known for her gift in beadwork Ann Cannon Woodbury, an early settler in St. George who was a leader in the lesser-known pioneer handicraft of silk production
 Angela Brown, a photographer, editor of SLUG magazine and founder of Craft Lake City Each of these women represent a part of the state’s tradition of industry and thrift, and all of them had a role in preserving artisan crafts as a cornerstone of Utah culture.
