I have always wanted to be a crafty person. I suppose if I actually took the time to learn some crafting skills, I could make some pretty rad stuff. Right now, I’m on par with my three year old and I figure we will learn to be crafty together. [Although I am darn good at making things look cool with spray paint - post forthcoming.] The rest of you DIY mavens should pack up your sewing kits, letterpress blocks, scissors, glue, and glitter and head to the Craftcation Conference in Ventura, CA from March 22-25th.
This three day event was put together by the talented duo of Nicole Stevenson [of Random Nicole] and Delilah Snell [of The Road Less Traveled] [both co-produce the Patchwork indie art festival as well]. It’s a smorgasbord of workshops and lectures geared to help you start, improve, and maintain your very own indie business.
Want to make felt flowers? You can do it at Craftcation.
Want to learn to bind books? They’ve got a workshop for it.
Want to find out how to finance your business? They have it covered.
Bake pies, make jewelry, learn wordpress, expand your business, make jam, take better photos, conquer social marketing, and tons more … sounds like a good time. Wish I could make it.
Thanks to Nicole for letting me be a part of spreading the word.
