What we're about
There's nothing quite as wonderful as a group of people making things together and establishing friendships in a creative, congenial setting, with perhaps a pint of Guinness or a craft IPA , a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
This group provides an opportunity to meet creative folks who live in or near the Boulder area. I have found that having a group that meets regularly can encourage everyone to complete projects (unfinished objects--ufo's) that have been languishing in the closet, and start on a project that has been languishing in your mind!
Anyone with a creative talent or an interest in creativity is encouraged to join. The list is too long to include everyevery craft and project type, but we welcome everyone, including musicians, engineers, knitters, writers, jewelery makers, art journalers, papercrafters, needlecrafters, scientists, engineers, fiber and visual artists - anyone with an avocation or hobby that you find is being placed on the back burner while life happens. You'll find encouragement with us and you might even find some inspiration to support you in moving ahead with a new project or area of interest.
All members are encouraged to post suggestions for meetups. Do you have a creative talent that you'd like to share with the rest of us? Do you have an art museum, store or other venue you'd like to check out? Post a meetup so we can all benefit from the inspiration!
We'd love to see projects underway, and of course if portable please bring to work on at the meetup. We are also interested in finding out about finished projects, seeing pictures of past and present projects, and talking about non-portable projects and project ideas. We mostly meet in pubs, tea houses, coffee shops, wine bars and the like. Look forward to seeing you at a meetup soon!
Please note that members who for whatever reason don't come to a meetup or at least visit the site once every six months are removed--and you are always welcome to sign up again. I have had the occasional six-month interval where life interferes with my plans, so I fully understand that circumstance!
