Our general schedule is: Eat, sleep, craft, repeat. We are planning a few, low-key, optional mini classes. The point of this weekend is not to be tied to a list of frenetic activities, but to relax and enjoy guilt free time to hang out with your friends, work on your current projects, start new ones, admire other's work, and did we mention RELAX?
