Creating Space to Live, Be, and Move
Roughhewn People exists to encourage and celebrate one’s creativity as they expand intentional living and creative expression beyond what might be obvious. To that end they strive to make invisible moments visible by sharing this sense of purpose with all who appreciate the beauty and richness of creative forms of self-expression.
WHO WE ARE
Roughhewn People speaks to the unfinished and imperfect elements of our lives. It speaks to the truth that we are a work in progress.
We are a multi-faceted group with a mix of creative desires. We want to breathe life into our daily routine. We want to awaken our hearts and inspire others to live and worship creatively. We desire to live in such a way that reflects a lifestyle of creativity and gratitude. How we live matters. What we do with our resources matters. Intentional living is at the heart of Roughhewn People.
At the heart of our events is a celebration of creativity. This includes artists, dancers, musicians, poets, writers, photographers, illustrators, graphic artists, sculptors, and others who find joy in the creative expression of their hands.

~share the work of artists with those who appreciate the arts and creative expression.
~network, encourage, learn and grow as creatives.
~partner with anyone who wants to transform the ordinary, unfinished elements of life around them into something beautiful.
