How exciting to announce our first-ever Chicago Makerie, to be held at The Geraghty, a venue of possibilities. This weekend retreat {our 25th!} will provide the wonderful opportunity to be immersed in modern creative workshops led by outstanding teachers and artists, a beautiful community of inspiring people, and the art of play and self-care. It’s a chance to slow down and connect with others who care deeply about creative living and share a love for handmade. This year’s Makerie will be centered around the home and the thoughtful, intentional spaces and art we create inside of it, featuring workshops in wallpaper design, table styling, abstract painting, carving your own functional spatula, improv hand quilting and hand sewing, painting with wool, and the timeless hand-written craft of calligraphy. We'd love for you to join us for our one and only big retreat of the year!
