Workshop News: February & Beyond
Greetings from February, where we hope the ground hog is telling us the truth and spring is on its way! Neither Punxsutawney Phil nor our local Jimmy of Sun Prairie saw their shadow; combined with the late January thaw and continuing mild temperatures, our hearts are soaring. We kicked off the 2024 workshop season with a Scratch Tile Workshop with Alisa Toninato of FeLion Studios and some of us went to the Pour’n Yer Heart Out event at Olbrich Gardens this past weekend to watch our DIY iron art come to life.
We also have the warm fuzzies from seeing so many friends at Madison’s Garden & Landscape Expo, where attendance soared to nearly 15,000 people and we handed out more than one thousand of our new catalogs. Thanks so much to our wonderful volunteers, board members, and artist-teachers, who shared their stories of Shake Rag Alley and talked about the wonderful opportunities to create with us.
Below you’ll find all sorts of opportunities to get in early on the wonderfulness of our spring calendar—from workshops & readings with our Winter Writing Reading Series residents, to our Scherbarth Residency programs, to our March workshops, and upcoming Jewelry Boot Camp and Mining Your Stories Writing Retreat.
Even if snowfall surprises us once more, we’ve got the creativity to keep you warm,
