Hi.  I’m Gewerken, and I like to research, make stuff, improve on existing designs, and share what I learn with others.  Most of what I do is centered around making my home a more beautiful and functional place for myself and my family to live, but I also enjoy the pursuit of knowledge and understanding for it’s own sake.  Gerwerken Crafts, and the Hang Your Hat Podcast is the medium by which I share what I do with the world in the hope that it will benefit those that come in contact with it.


When I am not making or researching I am usually spending time with my husband and kids, or working full time in the higher education industry.
