Craftworking 2022 at Northampton Center for the Arts

Crafting + Networking = Craftworking

Craftworking is back!

Hello, thank you for your interest in Craftworking! I’m so excited you’re here 🙂 If you miss connecting with your creativity and gathering safely with others you’re in the right place!

I’ve missed these things, too, and after much reflection it feels like the right time to get back out there and make it happen. I hope you’ll join me!

Craftworking is networking done differently. It’s a digital detox + a hands-on craft + an opportunity to connect with others (in-person!). If you’ve been before or already know you want to come, pick the project and date that works for you and reserve your spot! If you want to know more…read on!

Three Craftworking events are being held this spring at the Northampton Center for the Arts (NCFA), 33 Hawley Street, Northampton, MA (free parking!). Masks are required to enter NCFA.

3/21/22: Paper Flowers
5/2/22: Tiny POP! Box
6/7/22: Cards + Envelopes

Craftworking events are led by Amber Ladley of Happily Upcycled. Each date features a different Upcycled DIY project. All materials and instructions are provided.

Only 15 tickets are available for each date.

What is Craftworking?

Craftworking is an opportunity to connect with your creativity and make connections. Each event begins with a brief introduction, so we can all get to know one another followed by lots of crafting and chatting. There will be time at the end of the workshop for business networking and exchanging contact information.

Who is Craftworking for?

Craftworking is for people who have a small business, are self-employed, or have a desire to “talk shop” with others, AND they need a mindful break from screens.

Do you have to be a crafter/creative to attend?

Nope! No craft experience is required, but you do have to have an interest in trying something new.
