Did you know I teach many sorts of workshops? Subject matter is mushrooming as popularity continues to grow – from Potholder Rug Weaving to Gardener’s Vest Construction. Seasonal specialties happen with Wreath and Ornament Construction in time to make for your Holiday giving and we have a Mothers’ Day Open Workshop on the calendar for next month! Some of my workshops happen in my studio located in the former Notre Dame church in the heart of Shire City (better known as Pittsfield), MA. At each Studio Workshop there is one ‘free’ tuition spot. To take advantage of this generous offer, you just need to be financially unable to pay tuition, and the first one to ask. In exchange we ask that you help in the studio preparing for, and cleaning up after, the workshop you attend.
I also teach off-site and have regular gigs in a couple super cool venues. One is with Eileen Fisher, in their Irvington NY headquarters, as part of their pretty extensive (and still growing) textile-recycling program. Check out Green Eileen when time allows.
The Guilford Art Center in Guilford, CT is another fanciful location full of the magic of making where you will find me teaching a handful of new workshops this Spring and Summer.
Additionally I am available to teach in your location. Does your children’s school have a budget for daylong creative adventures? Maybe your sewing guild is up for some unconventional stitching high-jinx? Students range in age from 5 years on up! Contact the studio for our helpful information about planning your Crispina Workshop.
Oh and today, is the first Wednesday of April! So this is our First Wednesday Free Give-Away!!!
