the Makerie (part 2.1): workshops/teachers THIS year!

so, who’s teaching at this year’s Makerie? as usual it’s a lineup of talented makers that i’m beyond proud to be part of: helen dardik, rachel faucett, kristen fitzgerrell, jennifer mercede, mia semingson, and my pal rebecca ringquist! i can’t wait to meet these creative ladies and hopefully take one of their classes too. the [...]
