Where to Find Local Makers
Ithaca and the surrounding area is rich with local artisans. Here are some of my favorites at the moment. Click on the picture to visit.
Jewelry and Metalwork
Elizabeth Knight brings the communal jewelry studio founded in Brooklyn to Ithaca. Book bench time to do your own project or schedule a class to make Geometric Earrings, Stacked Rings, or your own Wedding Bands (so romantic!). All information can be found at her website.
It's always exciting to see someone offering classes that you want to take even if you have the skills already. Natasha Keller is offering a range of classes designed to empower new and accomplished sewers alike. Details to be found at her website and on her Facebook page.
FLAIR - Finger Lakes Art & Inspiration Retreat
It's billed as a "low-key women's crafting retreat in central NY," and it's all that and more. Not only is it a great opportunity to get away and learn some new skills, crafty classes & opportunities are organized year-round, and you'll meet some fantastic women doing cool things!
