Molly grew up in Northern Minnesota canoing, foraging, fishing, climbing trees, and milking goats. From a young age, she has had a strong desire to make things herself out of natural materials. She spent two years studying craft at a folk school in Norway where she explored a wide array of traditional craft, but especially hide tanning and square sailing in handmade wooden boats. 

Molly homesteads in Northern Minnesota with her partner, where they grow and forage for many of the things that they need. A herd of heritage sheep is a core element of what Molly does, and a dream she has harbored since childhood. She finds meaning in the old ways, from shearing her sheep by hand, to tanning hides traditionally, weaving, and more.
