The 2023 Skillshare Program Lineup is Here.

Are you look­ing for a fun and engag­ing way to dis­cov­er new skills? Sign up for a Skill­share pro­gram. Skill­share brings togeth­er com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers who are pas­sion­ate about shar­ing their exper­tise with res­i­dents in and around DeKalb Coun­ty who are eager to learn some­thing new.

This year’s pro­gram fea­tures a line­up of 12 work­shops. The work­shops will cov­er every­thing from book pub­lish­ing to bas­ket weav­ing to man­dala draw­ing to DIY drip irri­ga­tion sys­tems and much more. From April to July, peo­ple can attend work­shops and gain insights, tips and tech­niques that they can use in their per­son­al or pro­fes­sion­al lives. This year is even more spe­cial because we’re cel­e­brat­ing the 10th anniver­sary of the program.

Whether you’re inter­est­ed in gar­den­ing, craft­ing or plan­ning for the future, there’s some­thing for every­one. And the best part is that you’ll be learn­ing from your own neigh­bors. See below for sched­uled work­shops and reg­is­tra­tion information.
