Northeastern Washington State Ancestral Skills & Self-Sufficiency Gathering

Between the Rivers Gathering is a week-long educational workshop and intentional community for learning arts and skills that originate in the stone-age all the way up to modern homesteading. We are an annual event located in Washington State about an hour north of Spokane. We will have a multitude of instructors offering a broad range of classes all week long. Included will be wilderness survival skills of all kinds, living history, basic and homespun living, preparedness, and arts & skills of a practical and archeological nature.

We offer hands-on classes in ancestral arts, living and survival, and we also focus on the skills of self-sufficiency and sustainable living to minimize our impact on this planet we all share and help us gain confidence as we face the future. Come join our community and experience for yourself what it is all about!
