Tweet Tweet! Check out Our Wood Safety Whistle Workshop in Skid Row!

Last weekend Would Works joined the Los Angeles Poverty Department's 13th annual Festival for All Skid Row Artists with a pop-up wood safety whistle making workshop.  

Participants learned how to make angled cuts with a dovetail saw, drill holes, sand and shape plugs and assemble this fun little instrument that can be used to  call for help or just play a ditty.

It was a great way to celebrate the thriving creative community in Skid Row, and all the other inspiring arts organizations therein.  Thanks to LAPD for hosting this event and having us along!
