Saturday hippie: Taking to crafts

Jewelry-making was far from the only craft that proliferated as a consequence of the hippie outbreak. Pottery, weaving, woodworking were among the others.

It’s one more element of the Hippie Trails saga.

Did you take up any of these? How about those around you? Any memorable items in your collection?


Hippies came – and still come – in all varieties. Saturday Hippie is a weekly feature that highlights a counterculture awareness and spirit, including a vision of a harmonious global commonwealth on the horizon. The work and the lessons didn’t end in the ’60s and ’70s. Here’s to the Revolution, near and far.

    I never took up anything, sad to say. Well, that’s not entirely true. I embroidered flowers and designs on clothing and made my own clothing. Mostly I bought or traded for items other people made.
