Winter at Asheville BookWorks

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season!

Asheville BookWorks has always been so fortunate to share a creative path with a lot of wonderfully talented folks. As we approach the final quarter of operation as a public studio we will be especially aware of the importance of all the support we receive from so many amazing people across this country and abroad.

It is a truly abundant community and we will miss the interactions with all of you as the business transitions to a private art studio!

It is not nearly enough to say thanks but we deeply appreciate the many years of camaraderie we have enjoyed. For now we send our wishes out to everyone for the best over the holidays!

Classes will resume in mid-January through March 2019. We hope to see you for one of our great winter offerings. Most of them are listed below or visit our website for a full list through March 2019

The studio will be closed for a holiday break from December 20 through January 1, 2019. Online registrations will have continuous access (24/7) throughout the holidays. We’ll respond with confirmation emails as 
quickly as possible. We will reopen on January 2 for the final three months of Asheville BookWorks.

Below are a few of the classes coming to BookWorks in 2019. Please drop by our website for the complete listing! And, as always, if you have questions please contact us directly.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
