MARKETING FOUNDATIONS: FINDING YOUR PURPOSE & YOUR PEOPLE
Building a business is more than just creating a product - it's also about learning how to connect with your potential customers and communicate the value of that product.  In this workshop, we'll walk through some of those connection points so you can create a business that serves the right people with purpose.  No matter what stage of business you're in (or if you've even started your business yet), coming back to your "why" and your "ideal customer" is a great practice that can strengthen your messaging.  

This will be a relaxed and conversational-style workshop. I'll provide a workbook that we can work through during our time together, so you don't need to bring anything but yourself!

CIRCULAR WEAVING
Traditional weaving looms are amazing - they also tend to be the size of an upright piano (or small pipe organ!) Consider this class an introduction to NON-traditional weaving - with round looms that fit perfectly in your lap. Join designer and maker Robert Mahar and learn a unique approach to an old-school craft - it’s an opportunity to play with beautiful yarn and make a grouping of two weavings to hang on your wall.

The heart of this class is an elegant craft hack in which you’ll learn how to transform classic embroidery hoops into round weaving looms. The technique takes a little practice, but it’s so rewarding! Need a little encouragement? You’ll receive enough materials to create two circular weavings and Robert will have one loom already warped for you and ready to weave.

All materials (embroidery hoops, warp string, a limited palette of beautiful yarns and weaving needles!) are provided. However, if you have favorite yarn (worsted-weight, bulky or chunky yarns work best!) or want specific colors - you are encouraged to bring them with you to the workshop.

There are 12 spaces available in each time slot.
