- Valhalla's Workbench
We are a conglomeration of artists that work together to improve ourselves, our skills, and each other in the same. We are an odd family of different sorts that have learned that working together is better than trying to go it alone. We search all over to find other artists and artisans to promote and also for products that our customers would love to have.
We travel to several events to sell our wares and our crafts. There have been some bumps over the years and we have lost and gained several workmen. As the work flows as does life.
