As Told by Makers

artists and fleas makers image.jpg

Join us for “As Told by Makers”—a monthly event designed for Makers who channel the spirit of craft and creativity to build something beautiful. During this event, you’ll hear the stories earned and the lessons learned from the Makers who have come before you. We’re thrilled to welcome Luchiya Vavouliotis, Founder and Creative Director of Dani and the Rings, as this month's featured speaker!

You’ll have plenty of opportunities for open networking with your fellow Makers, as well as the chance to listen to a structured Q&A with Luchiya. We also encourage Makers to share their craft and display their products at the “Show Off Your Hustle” table.

The goal for this event is to show you innovative ways to tackle anything that comes your way. You’ll leave feeling inspired to grow and connected to the wider community of Makers.

This is a ticketed event. Snag yours now before it’s sold out!

About Luchiya Vavouliotis:

Luchiya was born and raised in the Bulgarian city of Plovdiv. Ever since she can remember, she was intrigued by watching her grandmother create the most beautiful crochet lace. As a result, Luchiya developed a deep respect and appreciation for everything handcrafted, as well as a strong desire to be part of that process.

After studying Journalism, her rebellious nature and curiosity for everything glamorous eventually led Luchiya to New York City. There, she had the opportunity to work for some of the most famous fashion brands in the world: Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Bottega Veneta, and Hermès.

The need to express herself through fine jewelry led her to the study of jewelry-making throughout the centuries in order to acquire the necessary craftsmanship and be able to realize her creative vision. Thus her new adventure, Dani and the Rings, was born.

ADAM J. KURTZ: THINGS ARE WHAT YOU MAKE OF THEM

Join Strand Bookstore and Artist & Fleas Soho for an evening of creative inspiration with Brooklyn artist Adam J. Kurtz as he reads from and reflects on his most recent book, Things Are What You Make of Them: Life Advice for Creatives. Whether you're working full-time in a creative industry, or just looking for encouragement on a personal project, these charmingly blunt little essays will help push you in the right direction. Event is free and open to the public but space is limited. Book available for purchase to be signed at the event.

This event is free to attend--RSVP here!

 

***

"Funny, wry, straightforward advice" -Adweek

"Serving up optimism and hope" -NYLON

"Highly relatable and will make you laugh, cry and feel less crazy than you think you are. You're actually fine!" -Man Repeller

"In Things Are What You Make of Them, Kurtz shares mini-essays of how he deals with the intangibles that can keep people stuck, overwhelmed, or afraid to move forward. He also confronts the idea of what concepts like happiness and success look like to people in creative or more traditional industries." -Refinery29
