Calling all 'craft' entrepreneurs and local businesses! Check out this unique series of six workshops covering the basics and then some.

With social and environmental and personal values, community vision, inner awareness and community building woven throughout, these workshops do more than give you business tools and tactics. They help you be what you want — with purpose.
