Learning a new craftsmanship and developing a new set of skills can always come in handy, especially if one as wholesome as sewing and one can even make a business of said skills once perfected. This, along with many other reasons, is why our dearest Christine Armstrong set out on quest to teach local members this set of skills. Alongside PEACE, Christine put together an amazing workshop that would benefit people in local communities Punta de Mita, Higuera Blanca and Corral del Risco.
The first workshop took place in the Higuera Blanca Preparatoria, which began on February 17th up to February 21st. Spots filled up quick resulting in the worship having a full house, as community members were thrilled to learn. Participants need not worry about expenses or anything else, being a nonprofit project Christine was more than willing to provide all the essentials so their only concern would only be focusing on the tasks and learning as much as possible. Upon coming to its end, feelings of accomplishment, enthusiasm and overall joy were shared amongst participants. And, they were not shy about expressing their gratitude towards Christine.
Hoping to exceed the outcome of the Higuera Blanca workshop, the next one will be hosted in Punta de Mita at PEACE facilities with confirmed dates from February 24th until the 28th. We wish Christine and all attendees the best of luck and hope that everyone gains new knowledge and experience.
