We set out to accomplish the difficult task of recreating our in-person marketplace as an immersive virtual event in a short amount of time.
With creative thinking, ingenuity, and a willingness to dive into the unknown, again and again, we believe that we accomplished that goal.
From creative content from our makers to classes, demonstrations, meet-the-makers panels, Instagram lives, Facebook live events, studio tours – so many amazing things over the course of nine-days! Thank you to you everyone who made the virtual event happen.
Stay tuned for surveys, updates, replays of the virtual events on our blog, and brand NEW events in 2021.
