Ask most of our staff what they like to do for fun and they’ll tell you that’s an easy answer: raft and zipline! But we have a few staff members with some real talent, and some real interesting hobbies when they’re not working at the coolest job ever.
Take Denise who works at our Hot Springs float trip outpost, for example. She makes an eclectic collection of one of a kind handbags, gourd art, handmade smudge feathers, and paintings. Perhaps one of our more talented employees, Denise even writes screenplays in her spare time.
Tasia and Sarah, members of our office and photo staff, collaborated this year to take glass and found objects from the French Broad River and turn them in to beautiful jewelry. French Broad Findings were for sale at the outpost all season, and they were a big hit.
We also have zip guides who make stain glass and sew handmade bathing suits and raft guides who are photographers, yoga teachers and musicians.
One of FBRZ’s owners is an artist as well. Korey makes functional pottery from her home studio such as plates, bowls, cups and teapots – her handmade ceramic mugs make for a great souvenir of your adventure. With loads of talent and a variety of interests, the staff members here are as interesting as they are awesome.
