local events: the makerie retreat
The Makerie is a creative retreat for adults that happens right here in Boulder, Colorado. During dates in April (and now in shorter Summer dates too), where you can make some space in your hectic life to slow down and get in touch with your creative side.
Whether you are a skilled crafter or sewer, have never picked up a paintbrush, threaded a needle or canned a vegetable, the Makerie offers something for everyone. Each class is led by an inspirational, (and often well known) creative person who is at the top of their field. Many teachers at the Makerie have written their own books about their processes and teach full time.
This Spring I was able to partake in a class for letterpress. It was an amazing experience filled with so much knowledge and as a bonus I now know how to use my C&P Pilot press.
