Hello my lovelies.
I have absolutely thrilling news for you today. After two long years of dreaming and planning, today we are launching our latest event - Soul Craft - A festival celebrating craft and connection!
This festival is unlike any craft festival out there in the big wide world today, so to explain what it is I've made you a little video.
Chatting to you all seemed a bit simpler than asking you to read a load of text.
Soul Craft is a festival for those of us who dream about making.
The program is two full days of all our favourite textile crafts in one big happy mix, from sewing to embroidery, knitting to natural dyeing, weaving to quilting. There will be ongoing speakers, panels, demonstrations, international and national guests, community projects, exhibitions, and a marketplace.
We want to celebrate the richness craft brings to our lives; how making supports us in our everyday, connecting us to ourselves and others and how it enables us to live the good life. Our vision is to create a space where we can come together and meet others in the craft community in real life, rather than online, and spend time immersed in making.
As always at The Craft Sessions, our focus is on traditional domestic, textile-based handcraft and on the community that surrounds what it is that we do.
You can find more the details over at our brand spanking new website www.soulcraftfestival.com
To celebrate the launch of Soul Craft - after two years of dreaming, scheming and planning! - we have a double day pass to the festival to giveaway. Either leave a comment on this blog post or on our instagram post for a chance to win. We'd love it if you could tag your friends too, as we really want to spread the word.
We will close the giveaway at 8pm Sunday 12th November Melbourne time!
Over the next few weeks we will be sharing all the details that will make this festival so special - our teachers and speakers, both national and international, ticket pricing and sales, the full program and all the fun things we have in store. We know that you will love the crafting utopia we have pulled together for you, and can't wait until next week when we will share all the details about the tickets AND our international guests!!! Can't wait.
We are really happy to answer any questions you have in the comments, so ask away....
