Last weekend was a gathering of “makers” hosted by a woman I met through my jeweler friend Francesca, whose is also named Fran. The space is exciting because it is still raw. Fran is an architect and her partner at the studio is an interior designer. Their spaces are developed but the large show space is not, which lends it an air of on-the-fly fun. It is a space open for classes, workshops and whatever keeps the child in all of us creating and alive. Not too “professional” or closed up.
I didn’t know anyone before signing up for this besides Francesca. And that was the interest for me. New blood, new ideas, new connections. And possibly new clients! Which did happen. And mostly it was a very pleasant way to come together and spend a Saturday eating delicious offerings and greeting new faces. Isn’t that what it can be about!
