Atenas Morales Aguilar (she/her)

Atenas is a botanical artist passionate about capturing the everlasting beauty of nature and preserving it through her art. She created Scarabajo as a space to share her work, which combines the traditional techniques of botanical printing and natural dyeing, using sustainably sourced materials from the Pacific Northwest and around the world. Each created piece is one-of-a-kind, showcasing the unique patterns, colors, and textures of the natural elements she works with. From delicate prints on fabric to vibrant yarns and textiles, her art brings the splendor of nature to the forefront, encouraging a deeper understanding and connection with the world around us. Her work is not only visually stunning but also meaningful, preserving the natural elements in art form and fostering a sense of respect and love for our planet.

KRISTEN RASK (SHE/HER)

Kristen is one of the organizers of Urban Craft Uprising, a maker, a baker and a reader. UCU takes up a good chunk of my time but when I’m not clacking away on my computer, I can often be found in my studio crocheting a variety of food items, baking for an occasion or simply because I have an extra tablespoon of lemon juice I simply can’t let go to waste OR reading. My goal for 2023 is to have just as much fun as I work and continue to build on community. I LOVE the maker community and feel so grateful to have landed in a craft show over 25 years ago. I have participated in many craft shows in the country over those years, wrote 8 or 9 craft books and love working with small businesses SO MUCH. Camp is definitely one of my favorite events to plan for all year! When I think of camp I am almost as starry eyed as I am here looking at this amazing dessert. I can’t wait to see you all!

Kellie Phelan (SHE/HER)

With the woods of New Hampshire as her childhood stomping grounds, Kellie developed an appreciation for the natural world and our connection to it. She spent the first decade of her career working in environmental consulting and now seeks to change the world on a much more local level – by building community, connecting over passions, and sharing skills. Kellie founded The Works in 2018 as a place to do just that. Growing from a one-woman pop-up into a brick and mortar location in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, The Works offers hands-on experiences through both in-person classes and DIY Kits.

lindsey ross (she/her)

A lifelong entrepreneur, Lindsey Ross has been organizing the Urban Craft Uprising for 18 years, and craft show vending for 15. She is also the owner of Yarnia, a custom yarn shop in Portland, which she recently transitioned from a brick & mortar to an online-only business out of her home. She loves finding ways for businesses to run more efficiently, and designing systems to make that happen. She also loves spreadsheets…A LOT. On her off hours you may catch her biking around town with her husband and a jambox, catching live local bluegrass, clocking her 10,000 steps with her pitbull Tucker, or knitting simultaneously with any other activity that doesn’t require both hands.

LYDIA BREWER (she/her)

Lydia works full-time as a portrait photographer in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle. She lives with her husband, teenage daughter and a wealth of furry family members. She obtained a degree in commercial photography in the 90’s and has done one form of photography or another ever since. Aside from photography, her hobbies mostly involve roller skating, rabbits, holiday decorating, cross-stitch, all things 1960’s era, podcasts and David Bowie. This is her fourth year teaching/attending Camp Thundercraft and she could not be more excited! 

Camp ThunderCraft wouldn’t be nearly as awesome without our generous sponsors! All these wonderful businesses are helping out in some way to make sure the weekend is super fantastic.
