We are totally thrilled to be launching The Craft Sessions. The Craft Sessions is a weekend retreat of creative workshops, delicious food, quiet moments and inspiring people. It is being held Friday October 25th to Sunday 27th in the Yarra Valley near Melbourne.
Over the past 5 years, we have gathered in kitchens and living rooms across Melbourne to craft. The idea of The Craft Sessions has grown out of those gatherings - a collective love for making things, sharing stories and recognition that there is a spirit in the craft revival that involves both the beauty of the product and also the shared process that is making. The Craft Sessions are based on the simple idea that craft can build community.
We created The Craft Sessions to provide a space for crafters to come together; to share ideas, to learn from, and be inspired by one another. We wanted time to retreat together. To connect over more than just craft -to meet others who also value handmade and the joy that creating brings to our everyday life.
We wanted to create an event where enthusiastic beginners could come and learn to make beautiful things with simple techniques. Where old-school crafts could be taught in new-school ways. Where already skilled crafters could come, be inspired and walk away with some new tricks or skills. Everyone loves a new trick - yes?
After tumbling round in our heads and conversations over the last 5 years it is a joy to see it come to life. Have a look around the site. We hope you like what you see!
More information will be coming soon (the class descriptions will be up next week!!) on the website and the blog, but if you want to be the first to know please join our mailing list. And let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.
