We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Craftcation on their sixth annual business and makers conference happening April 27-30, 2017. Each year they gather up makers, artists, DIYers and creative business owners in the beach city of Ventura, California (just a little north of Los Angeles) to get away and learn new craft and business skills.
This year we helped them create tracks from the schedule of over 100 workshops and activities-- which was quite the feat because there are sooo many great sessions to choose from! Putting the tracks together showed me that there's something for everyone at Craftcation.
For the first time we are hosting "Think Tanks", which are versions of our peer-driven product and design roundtables. And we are SUPER excited to have the design geniuses at Aeolidia present at two of those. If you're going to Craftcation and need to work out ideas and problems, you'll want to make sure that you try to get to one of them!
If you are attending Craftcation, these tracks can help you plan your time there based on your interests. They aren't hard and fast by any means! But they are a great way to start thinking about your schedule instead of from scratch
If you aren't going to Craftcation but want to-- good news, registration is still open and you can register here! If you're a member of Academy of Handmade, you get a discount too (you've just got to go search for it in the forums). And if you aren't going this year, start saving up for 2018 because you won't want to miss it!
Are you beyond the 101 in your business? Looking to explore some next-level topics? This track takes you through classes that will help you focus on going deeper in your business.
The sewing classes at Craftcation are numerous and taught by some of the top sewists out there. If you are wanting to hammer out a few projects and pickup some new skills, I would highly recommend this track.
Kill two birds with one stone: have crafty fun times at the beach and also get new decor for your home!
Coming for a break but also want to do something for your business too? We created a track where you can mix things up!
I really do hope you will join us. And if you've already purchased your ticket, I can't wait to meet you!
