Our DIY Workshop is a shared makers-space. We invite other local artists to join us in teaching classes of all mediums. We began our journey opening to the public in September 2019. We will continue to add guest artists to our calendar. If you are an artist or maker, please send us a message to find out more about how you can teach in our maker-space.
