The Makerie Summer Series presented by Whole Foods is a series of creative day retreats :: June 2 ~ on the farm :: July 7 ~ for a gathering :: August 4 ~ in the home :: designed for anyone! By gathering our local creative and food communities, we'll be providing three unique, soul-filled days at the lovely Lyons Farmette. Each event, centered around a theme, offers a variety of modern, creative and homesteading classes in sewing, photography, letterpress, flower arranging, collage and canning, just to name a few of the fabulous choices. Delicious and healthy meals, provided by eat PRIVATE CHEF & CATERING co., Crust and Whole Foods, incorporate local, farm fresh and organic food into each event through a charming styled boxed lunch and a fabulous farm dinner. Add to that marvelous mix, a creative cocktail hour complete with a special 'cocktail crafting' class by Whole Foods. If that didn't sound like a day dream, well we even have a few surprises planned on top of all that to be sprinkled into every event! We are immensely grateful to Whole Foods for their incredible support as our presenting sponsor.
The inspiration to start the Summer Series came out of the need to celebrate and focus on our local creative and food communities and to highlight the incredible people and small businesses that are doing fantastic things. Having them share their knowledge through leading workshops in an intimate setting creates a wonderful connection within our communities and sitting down next to each other for a farm dinner at the end of the day, pulling our chairs close, tops off the night for an overall unforgettable experience. After creating weekend long retreats, we felt the need for a new offering that was only one day and filled with the same amount of magic and love as our current creative getaways. We can't wait to combine two of our very favorite things ~ creative workshops and farm dinners ~ which naturally go hand and hand for this Summer Series celebration. So pencil us in and join us! We'd absolutely love to have you.
