I have always been a “joiner”. I’m guilty as charged. I have no problem showing up for activities alone, and I’m always down to gain a new skill or test out something exciting and fun. I stumbled upon SkillPop in December, and enrolled in their holiday cocktail class faster than you could say “Hot Toddy”.
Their goal is to make experiential education available through pop-up classes. They have a TON of variety of classes ranging from art to business to culinary. They are taught by people in your own community, and held at unique venues around the area. All the classes I’ve taken have been at the Mayton Inn, and it’s been a blast to check out the hotel, bars and restaurants they have.
Last night, I checked a box off of my 101 in 1001 list and learned to decorate sugar cookies! The girls from Southern Sugar Bakery were patient, approachable and extremely skilled instructors. I left feeling super confident and full of sugar, my absolutely favorite way to feel.
SkillPop began in Charlotte, and has expanded to offer classes in the Triangle, Greenville and Nashville. Many of y’all have expressed interest in getting involved, so keep an eye on their site (or come visit me!).
