The Compass, a podcast dedicated to the stories of working actors, writers, directors, designers, dancers, musicians, composers, and playwrights, welcomes craftsperson Sarah Kirkham.
Created by actor Leah Walsh, the podcast documents the lives of artists navigating the waters between art and commerce. Each week, Playbill highlights Walsh’s latest episode with industry professionals who share their own stories about making art, making a living, and maintaining inspiration.
In this week’s episode craftsperson and business owner Kirkham shares her experiences moving from building theatrical props to making leather goods and starting her own company with her business partner. She also details putting down roots in Milwaukee, being open to new opportunities, having siblings who are also artists, and loving the National Park System.
