  • Events at The Work*Shop: Now with Classes!

    Did you ever want to learn to knit? Are you interested in making your own beaded jewelry? You've heard the term Feng Shui but aren't sure what it means? Well, just check out our class lineup for all the answers. We are always looking for new class ideas and new instructors, and we'll be adding classes every week, so be sure to stay tuned!

    Celebrate Martha's Freedom!

    We don't know about you, but we've had a big Martha-shaped hole in our lives since she's been doing her time. So, we're going to celebrate her release with a party on March 6. We're planning a Martha look-alike contest, flower arranging races, and of course, lots of other good things. Mark your calendar and plan to be there!

    Love Books? Have Too Many? Want More?

    Clean out those bookshelves and bring your gently used books to The Work*Shop book swap! For every book you bring (in good to excellent condition) you'll be able to trade for another! The more books you bring, the more new-to-you books you'll get to take. And please spread the word; the more people who come, the more books we'll have. Leftover books will be donated to a worthy charity, and we're open to suggestions. When: Sunday, February 27, 12-4 p.m. Cost: $3 per person or $5 for two. (Helps pay the bills, you know.)

    Afternoon Getaway for Parents and Kids

    The Work*Shop presents "Make Me a Story" every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:30 p.m. Children and their parent(s) will listen to a story and make related projects. Upcoming projects include ocean life figurines, bread plates, treasure boxes, bubble bath and more.

    Spotlight: Linda's Mirror

    This groovy "jester" mirror was Linda's first mosaic project. She used irridescent purple and green tiles accented with bright orange, and black grout. We were all pleased with the outcome!
