What we're about

Please note: This group currently meets in Nyack, NY. Kindly request to join only if you live within the surrounding areas, or are willing to make the drive. Thank you.

Welcome! This group is an extension of the official Gather + Create (http://www.gathercreate.co) brand, a new venture by Lillian Liming (http://www.lillianliming.com) for women to find community with other creative/crafty/artsy women. We aim to inspire connection, community, and creativity through creative/craft/art workshops and gatherings.

We welcome crafters and creatives of all levels, and especially those who would like to tap into their creative side but need a bit of inspiration or encouragement to get started. As Henri Matisse said, "creativity takes courage", so let's encourage one another through our craft!

Informal meetups (no instruction) as well as formal workshops/classes will be listed here.

For our bi-monthly informal "Gather & Create" meetups, the fee covers the cost of space, supplies, refreshments, and admin fees.

For workshops/classes, the course fee covers cost of space, instructor, supplies (in some cases, a take-home kit), refreshments, and admin fees.

Take a look at the group photo album (https://www.meetup.com/gather-create-nyack/photos/) to get an idea of the venue and the type of events you can expect.

Looking forward to meeting you soon!

As alcohol may be served at our events, we ask that members be 21 and over, please.
