Join us!

Join us at our 2024 annual gathering - The Joy of Making: Artistry, Handicrafts, and Creativity in a Digital Age from July 25-27, 2024, in Wilmore, Kentucky! This conference will be a time of exploration and growth as we unpack Charlotte Mason’s ideas on handwork, life skills, and the joy of making. We’ll study the impact of creative work and discuss how artistry connects to many areas of the feast, sometimes in surprising ways. Our sessions will honor the old and embrace the new, and of course, we’ll live out what we teach as makers of beautiful and useful things!

Not going to make it to Kentucky? We hope you'll join us virtually and perhaps gather your own group to watch conference sessions together!

Refund requests received by June 1, 2024 will receive a refund minus a $30 cancellation fee. After June 1, we are unable to provide refunds. However, tickets are transferable as long as the transfer request is received by June 15. Virtual tickets are non-refundable.

We hope to see you there! View more details on the conference page.

"Again we know that the human hand is a wonderful and exquisite instrument to be used in a hundred movements exacting delicacy, direction and force; every such movement is a cause of joy as it leads to the pleasure of execution and the triumph of success. We begin to understand this and make some efforts to train the young in the deft handling of tools and the practice of handicrafts. Some day perhaps, we shall see apprenticeship to trades revived and good and beautiful work enforced. In so far, we are laying ourselves out to secure that each shall "live his life"; and that, not at his neighbor's expense; because, so wonderful is the economy of the world that when a man really lives his life he benefits his neighbor as well as himself; we all thrive in the well being of each."
~Charlotte Mason, Philosophy of Education p. 328
