Episode #43: Squam Art Workshops Founder and Director, Eilzabeth Duvivier

February 16th, 2015 · Comments

On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast we're talking about art retreats with my guest, Elizabeth Duvivier. Elizabeth is the founder and director of Squam Art Workshops. Elizabeth founded Squam in 2008 as a way to bring a similar experience to the one she had at Artfest to the East Coast. Attendees of Squam Art Workshop describe it as a magical experience in which they can let go, connect, learn, and rejuvenate. Elizabeth explains how she works to create that feeling at Squam. We also talk about the business side of running an art workshop including choosing instructors and hiring staff.
