***DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS MARCH 31ST!***
Register today for Camp ThunderCraft 2018!
[The most valuable thing I learned ] was that I share the same fears, anxieties and struggles as everyone else. Being around others who are in the same boat gave me a boost of confidence and the drive to keep going. I feel really motivated to get into my studio today, after months of going through a period of struggling with why I’m doing this. Feels like I have my focus back.
“This weekend was a totally enlightening experience. A few weeks ago, a coworker of mine who is also crafty, sent me the link to a camp for crafters. My mind was blown. I’d never heard of anything remotely like this…” Read the rest of this blog post about Camp ThunderCraft from one of our campers
“Last month I went to camp…Camp Thundercraft! Because I am a fan of the Urban Craft Uprising indie craft shows in Seattle, I saw information via their Facebook Page about their new camp for small business owners/makers. How could I resist?…” Read the rest of this blog post about Camp ThunderCraft from one of our campers
I learned that anyone or can be an artist, and you don’t have to do in life what people tell you. You can live as creative or as colorful a life as you choose for yourself. You can be whatever kind of person or artist you want to be, you don’t have to sit at a desk and make phone calls to have a job, you can host comic book events, art shows. Life is yours to be as little or as much creative as you want.
The networking was amazing at camp. I am so appreciative of all of the people I met. The most valuable thing I learned was to keep going, keep pushing through, and that I’m not alone in my struggles with my business. Every problem I’ve had, someone else has had and has been able to get through.
Loved this weekend! So rich, so beneficial. Loved the camp. Loved the thunder! 🌩⛈🌦Best value EVER in my 19 years in business. So, Thank You for creating the totally affordable, super dynamic, creative business conference weekend EVER. And thank you for the courageous session on “political/personal”. I met amazing women doing amazing things at each moment. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I truly am grateful that this camp was started and that I got to be there for its first year. I can’t even tell you how much I loved being around people who have made their work and their life their art, for so long I have been told that you need to go to college and get a job to live a successful happy life. But this camp and the people there taught me to do what I wanted, do what makes me happy. To not question who I am and to not question if I am an artist or not. This camp has totally changed my perspective on who I am as artist, and has totally cleared my path for what I want to do in the future, when it seemed so blurry. Thank you so much you guys! It was definitely an experience I will always cherish and never forget.
I think the most valuable thing for me was the networking and connecting with other people in my industry. I went in with hopes of learning a ton from the workshops…and while some of them were good, I learned a ton just from talking and connecting with other people.
