Maria Luisa Creative Workshops
As many of you have come to know, Maria Luisa Boutique is more than just a place to shop. Sure, both Maria Luisa Boutique and Maria Luisa Global/Local are filled with unique merchandise, designed to catch your eye, whether you’re shopping for a great gift or just in need of some retail therapy. We’ve always felt that our shops are also great places to meet, gather, connect, share and learn.
Over the years, we’ve hosted countless artists, authors, poets, musicians and all kinds of people who have shared their unique expertise with us. No matter how diverse the topic, each time we offer a special event there has been a common theme: coming together to enrich our lives and those around us.
In keeping with that spirit, we are delighted to announce our new series of creative Workshops to further build this aspect of the “Maria Luisa Community,” and we do hope you will join us! The workshops are designed to add yet another dimension to our involvement and commitment to our community; one that is itself creative, diverse and eager to share and learn.
The Maria Luisa Creative Workshops will touch on topics that, though diverse, all align with our mission. Workshop subjects may range form meditation reading and writing to do-it-yourself projects to exploring Fair Trade practices and ways to better respect ad honor our Earth. Each workshop will be a collaborative effort with local artists and experts, with 25 percent of all income generated from the workshops to benefit the ML by Maria Luisa Scholarship fund and the remainder going to the presenting collaborator.
We hope that you’ll consider attending one (or more) of our workshops! After all, our goal is to help create opportunities for women who interested in learning new skills and becoming empowered by those skills. We hope that, both through each session and as a series, the workshops will allow us to all better realize that we all have the potential to make a difference.
Please be in touch if you would like to suggest topics or discuss becoming a workshop collaborator. And please note that scholarships for these workshops will be available. For consideration, please contact us at [email protected]
