We are a council of women who carry a vision to uplift artists, mothers, brothers, elders, and beyond through the creative and healing arts. We offer transformative retreats and skill-building workshops to inspire self- and collective-growth and to revive participants' vital connection to the natural world.
We look forward to growing our network to include others who share a passion to connect and elevate the human family.

As a child, Erica Ekrem was shaped by the quiet strength of the prairie, by stories her grandmother told her during long, Dakotan winters, and by her parents who raised her in intimate relationship to nature. At the heart of her offerings lays an unwavering reverence for Nature paired with a fierce will to protect plants, animals, & places still wild. Erica lives with her partner & their two children along the forested tidelines of Cascadia.
Born in the Virginia hills and raised among bees, Jane is an earth-woman who walks on her grandmother's legs. Drawn to binding books as a moth to flame, Jane apprenticed with Erica Ekrem for a year before the two seeded their own collaborative bindery, Loombound. She lives on the west coast of Orcas Island, and is a constant practitioner of permaculture design, traditional skills, and above all, gratitude.
UPLIFT Women's Skillshare is an intuitive, activated gathering of women focused on sharing both traditional & modern folk skills as well as the meditative arts. We will gather for two separate sessions on Morningstar Farm, Orcas Island, WA. We aim for accessibility by offering work-trade opportunities and sliding scale payment. This will be an intimate event allowing each sister the timespace to share and reflect her experience. We welcome 22 participants for each session.
