Our Upcoming Events

We believe… that knowledge is power and that self-sufficiency is an asset.

We believe… in slowing down, getting our hands down in the dirt, and learning how to make and do the things our grandmothers and grandfathers knew how to make and do.

We believe… in appreciating the time, resources, and processes that go into making the products we enjoy and use.

And we believe… in the collective – the sharing of information and resources for the betterment of the whole community.

With this in mind, we offer a constantly-evolving selection of classes, workshops, discussions, and other maker events here at our Work+Shop in the pursuit of building self-sufficiency, practical capacity, and community. We hope you’ll come meet us at one of the events below!

Swap your colors with other guests to bring home three full size lip glosses in your favorite colors (regularly priced at $10 apiece). Learn how to work with micas and oxides for color, essential oils for flavor, and learn how to choose between beeswax or vegan ingredients.

    Price is $30 at the door, or $25 purchased in advance.  Kid friendly! Bulk ingredients to make more at home will be available for additional cost at the Work+Shop.
