**UPDATE** Our Hungerford space was rented out before we were able to jump on it!!! DILEMMA!!! Any ideas?
It has been awesome being a team leader on The Rochester NY Etsy Street Team and continues to get even more exciting. We have been making small waves in the community over the past two years, from newspaper articles, to TV spots and proud representation at many festivals and art markets. In recent months our team has been working on a bigger idea. We wanted to build a sense of creative community in Rochester beyond our group while making our presence known. This led to some grant writing (thanks VERY much to Sarah Goldhawk) and a plan to join forces with the Hungerford for one month.
And.....(drumroll)..... we made it happen! Here is the article on Etsy announcing August's Etsy Team Grant winners.
We are planning lots of fun including: a First Friday market, swap meet, after market, workshops and even a Halloween shindig. Another area Art teacher on the team will be hosting a Creativity Starter workshop with me. Keep on the look out and join the fun in October!
