WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS

Tradespeople often recall early experiences that ignited a passion for hands-on creating, making, and problem-solving.

We kindle that same enthusiasm in tomorrow's makers, creators, and tradespeople through immersive events that allow participants to try the trades alongside professionals who share their expertise and love for what they do.
