the makerie creative retreat {coming soon!}


If saving your pennies is something you're resolving to do in 2011, here's something exciting to save your pennies for. The Makerie is a creative retreat weekend happening in Boulder, CO this April, designed to lovingly nurture the creative spirit in all of us. It will be full of amazing creative/crafting workshops (i.e. sewing, embroidery, knitting, painting, block printing, pattern making, etc...) and is for anyone who wants to be creative or try something totally new in a supportive and loving environment.

BLOCK PRINTING | COLOR | EMBELLISHMENT | JEWELRY DESIGN

KNITTING | PAINTING | PATTERN DESIGN | PHOTOGRAPHY

RECYCLED ART | SHOE MAKING | YOGA


They have an AMAZING line-up of teachers from around the country for this inaugural year. In addition to the classes, they will offer wake-up yoga and/or hiking, as well as healthy, organic, and local (where possible) yummy foods as part of the weekend so everyone feels cared for all around. Think of it like summer camp for adults (but in April!); a weekend with no cooking or cleaning or errands, just creating and playing! Attendees will have the chance to stay in cozy cottages, eat delicious meals together, and simply be part of a fun, creative community for a few days.

Hmmm... I think it will be a little too far for me to go there... ;o)

It's a pity!

FUN! This is something I will need to keep my eye open for next year.

Oh, I would love to go! Too bad I have an infant and 4 year old. Someday I'll be able to travel again by myself...

I would love to go....only a bit far being in FL... BUT still was thinking about it. Only issue is being a stay at home mommy & trying to start a small online business... $900 plus is WAY expensive for those like me. Plus I would have air fare... BUMMER! And I really need something like this...

I would love to go as well, could probably find a sitter for my kids, even have family and friends in Colorado to lure me as well... but I just can't afford to. :(

Perhaps if there was a scholarship to win, I could come up with the airfare.
