Shake Rag Alley
In the News

Workshop News: September & Beyond

Fall is here. My favorite!

Over Labor Day weekend I was in Michigan and saw some of the trees changing to the deep reds, bright yellows & warm oranges that are soon to visit Mineral Point. Change, it is inevitable. With the metamorphosis of seasons, Shake Rag Alley is busy preparing for so many exciting things: Fiber FaireA Ghostly Gathering, Trick ‘R Treat, Santa Day. And then Shake Rag Alley goes through its own change … planning for 2024 and all of the magical offerings that you have come to know and love, with some new opportunities for finding connections. That is one thing that does not change at Shake Rag Alley. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen college roommates meeting to take Robust Rag Rug, a sister making pendants (see above) for her sisters in Enamel Buffet, a person who has always taken care of others embracing a solo trip to Art Adventure. The bonds we form while creating, either with others or ourselves, are part of the magic. When we create, we open our hearts and minds to the sometimes hidden parts of ourselves that want to burst forth. 

We still have spots open for you to explore your creativity in a number of ways—and we’re always happy to add your name to the waitlist for sold-out classes. What is calling your name?!

Song for Autumn
In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind?
