These workshops are usually geared towards health, social justice, domestic violence, families, and various resources. This year they decided to offer two creativity workshops as well, acknowledging that this is an area that is often neglected and yet so important to nourishing a healthy life.

It's that time of year again when school begins, the weather cools and the colors of nature are truly amazing. Yup, autumn is finally here. In most parts of the Hudson Valley it feels a bit more like winter these day, brrr, but it definitely fall. The leaves have turned, pumpkins and gourds abound, cider and doughnuts are readily available and the holidays are quickly approaching.
Our team of fabulous Hudson Valley artists took on our very first design challenge; create something, anything at all, using the inspiration of autumn. Having such a diverse group of crafters made the challenge that much more exciting. Everyone who participated created something truly unique and beautiful and definitely with autumn in mind.
Here are the links to our final designs in our individual Etsy shops, I hope you enjoy our creativity:) Happy Fall!
