Hi Everyone! I am so thrilled to finally launch Brass Button Events and this here new website. This experience has been a dream come true for me as I finally get to unite so many of my favorite things--crafting, learning rad new skills, meeting and connecting with amazing artists, and sharing my love for handmade things with others.
Throughout my life, as I've shared different projects or new passions with friends, coworkers, and family members, I often get the response, "Wow! That's so cool! I wish I could make [insert craft-of-the-day]." While many artists and makers spend years working to hone their skills and perfect their crafts, each one of them started at the beginning. As I've explored different art forms, I've found that learning just the first few basics of a new skill can be enough to demystify how something is made or works and often, that's all the encouragement I need to delve deeper, experiment, and eventually make something I'm proud of.
My goal with this business is to encourage the same attitude in others. I hope that by trying a new craft, connecting with a local artist to hear about their journey, and encouraging peers through the making process, folks will leave the workshop feeling proud of what they made and inspired to continue chasing curiosity, learning from their community, and of course, making rad things with their own hands.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you in a Brass Button workshop soon!
