Crosshatch Series

Crosshatch Series: Bridging the Gap Between Interest and Action

How often have you been inspired by a talk or conference, but then lacked the tools or resources to follow up? You want to make a difference with the new information you received, but have no idea how. Oryana and Crosshatch are teaming up to provide a quarterly series to connect people who are interested in learning a skill and taking action on it. This series will allow passionate individuals to meet and join four of Crosshatch’s incredible guilds and take a step toward making their dream a reality.

These meetings will consist of a lecture and demo from guild members with a Q&A following. You will then be able to join these like-minded societies or sign up to receive further information. Light snacks provided.

Where: Oryana Community Co-op’s new cafe dining room

Cost: FREE but space is limited. Please RSVP at Oryana's Customer Service desk or on Eventbrite.com
