Welcome Our New Program Director Michele Liu!

We're thrilled to announce the newest Would Works team member--Michele Liu! 

In addition to leading the relaunch of Would Works existing programs this Spring, Michele will be developing the new "Outdoor Workshop" model as we pivot our program to include the design and fabrication of outdoor furniture for public spaces around LA.

When not at Would Works, Michele designs and builds furniture for her design studio THE NEVERENDING BALLOON and teaches design and woodworking classes in the Los Angeles area.

Liu holds a BFA from OTIS COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN, and a Masters degree from DESIGN ACADEMY EINDHOVEN.
