The founders of indie craft and art festival Patchwork were sitting in LA gridlock when the idea came to them for the Craftcation Conference. "I've always wanted to take a little crafty vacation where I can get my craft on and share the things I've learned with others," said co-founder Nicole Stevenson who, along with fellow craft-lover Delilah Snell, has organized just such a thing. The duo is putting on a four-day conference in Ventura for anyone who enjoys making things to sell on a small scale, from canned goods to necklaces. The schedule of activities includes networking, crochet classes, yoga, a coffee brewing and roasting workshop, an instructional on operating your own market booth, a talk about getting started on Etsy, social media classes, kombucha brewing sessions and much more. You get the gist, right?
Tickets are available here and range in price from $165 for one day of attendance to $335 for the full four-day stretch. Interested parties can view all the activities on the Craftcation site.
