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.
Dates: April 7 - 10, 2011
So who's in? Let's get a bunch of LBS readers together and go!
