Incite Your Creative Side with a Class from Dabble

Go Hobby Crazy

pasta making!

You swore you’d learn French after watching Breathless. But sacrificing ten straight Saturdays would be très difficile.

Learn new skills without les grands commitments at Dabble, a new online marketplace from local creatives Erin Hopmann and Jessica Lybeck. When the friends/business partners found themselves lusting after more hobbies (guitar lessons, wine-making) than they had time and disposable income for, a start-up was born.

From urban composting and beer brewing to Photoshop basics and knitting 101, you can learn just about anything. Taught by freelancers, artists, and hobbyists, the classes take place at cozy venues coordinated by Hopmann and Lybeck.

At only twenty bucks a pop, each one- to three-hour session is insanely affordable and a great way to whet your appetite without going off the deep end.

It’s a commitment you can afford to keep.
