Introducing // Field + Foundry

field + foundry with bing // a thousand threads
Finally, you guys, I can let you in on this secret! I’d like you to meet our latest venture, Field + Foundry, a dinner series meant to foster new connections and collaboration among creatives in the greater DC area.

Melissa Hope and I have teamed up with Bing to hold three small dinners this summer and fall, and we’ve gathered a great group of creatives that we can’t wait to connect. Each evening will feature an outstanding creative or local business owner who will share a little bit of their inspiring journey with the group. Each will also feature a short workshop that will allow folks to create something they can take home. For the first of these dinners, to be held super soon (next week!) at a farm in Virginia, Amanda Marko of the newly-launched Trouvé Magazine will join us to speak, and guests will be invited to make their own sourdough starter to take home.

And, of course, we’ll treat everyone to some awesome seasonal pie!

I can’t wait to share more details as they begin to take shape, and to take you all on our journey along the way.

If you’re an awesome creative in the DC area and you’d like to join us at a future event, I hope you’ll visit our site and sign up to join the collective! We’d love to hear all about what you do!

    […] Field + Foundry (much like this blog) was formed out of creative unrest. A need in me to build the kind of community I felt I’d have if I still lived in Oregon. To learn and grow and share with the people who I didn’t know, just a few years ago, were all around me. The folks who, once upon a time, I thought somehow only lived in LA and New York, Portland and Austin, and seemingly everywhere but here. […]
