Viking Creations' mission is to
reclaim the dying Appalachian art of weaving, in addition to Martha
Berry's dream of providing meaningful work to students. It was
officially established as a student enterprise in late 2011 thanks to
devoted Berry alumni, staff and faculty members. Members of the Sunshine Room
(a local group of volunteer weavers who have graduated from Berry
College) are supporting the student team with their knowledge, talent,
time and guidance.
Woven products that will be available
for sale include: mug rugs (coasters), table runners, place mats,
bookmarks, and other handcrafted products.
As a newly-created
enterprise, Viking Creations' ordering system is currently under
development. Customers with questions or comments can contact the
enterprise CEO Amanda Marbut at firstname.lastname@example.org.
