Mark your calendars for another biannual Weekend Workshop. We are anticipating some growth and moving our location to Nature's Treasures, the rock and crystal shop just up the feeder road from Fiesta on I-35 north (across from Hancock Center).
With the expansion of our capacity to seat 100 people, we will be increasing the vendor space so that we will have up to five vendors this time around. If you know a vendor of Pagan/Heathen oriented wares, please let us know.
Vendors so far are:
Split Rock Studio
World on a String
We will continue to have a BYO food/snack/drink buffet.
Workshops for the event are as follows:
