CH 31: With Squam Art Workshops founder Elizabeth Duvivier

Ep 31 Curious Handmade Podcast

Today I have a very special treat for you.

In last week’s episode, I talked about my experience at the Spring session of Squam Art Workshops founded by Elizabeth Duvivier held at Squam lake, New Hampshire in the US.

Squam is all about promoting creativity as a way of life.

This week I am so honoured to be sharing with you a conversation I had with Elizabeth at Squam.

We settled into one of the gorgeous cabins in the woods after a magical poetry reading by Sarah Sousa, and Elizabeth shared her stories and wisdom.
