Best DIY Community Center - 2010
We first heard of Workshop when it offered a class called Rock 'n' Roll Sewing for Dudes. In it, students could learn to peg their jeans, make a beer cozy, and put patches on their jackets or vests. It was all very practical, no matter how hard we were laughing. But this was only the beginning, and the large space popped up on our radar again with Heavy Metal Aerobics, whose hot, tattooed instructor told us she'd be having students lift beer cans in place of hand weights. Again, it was no joke, in spite of having an excellent sense of humor. Currently, the schedule of classes includes Screen Printing for Newbies, DIY Mixology, and our favorite, Glass Jar Terrariums. This is community-building at its finest and most fun, and those aerobics classes are still going, hint hint.
