Author Event Roundup – Summer 2013
If you are anything like us, you’ve probably had “learn a new skill” on your to do list for a while or maybe you’re just hoping for insight on getting creative.
Make the most out of summer’s extra daylight hours by finding an artist talk or craft class near you.
Learn the elegant art of shibori tie-dye, dabble in collage, or take a knit-tastic European vacation with Nicky Epstein. There are expert authors, teachers, and designers speaking and offering classes throughout the country. No matter where you are, or what you want to learn, there’s someone willing to share their expertise with you.
Take a look at our list of classes and author events to see who will be heading for your neck of the woods. For more information on these events, please click on the links below.
