Would Works Celebrates 10 Years!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for The Sawdust Soiree, a celebration of 10 years of Would Works on December 11, 2022.

We enjoyed hosting our community of Board members, volunteers, case workers, past and present Artisans, customers, vendors, supporters and friends. We hope this is the first of many in-person public events we will host in our new, light-filled workshop space in LA's bustling garment district. We hope you'll join us! 

The Sawdust Soiree featured fun woodworking workshops sponsored by Walrus Oil where WW Artisans taught participants how to make wood photo holders and candle holders...woodworking workshops, woodshop, woodworking class, los angelesLA woodworking workshops, woodworking class, Would Works...a pop up holiday market of Would Works wares...would works holiday market...delicious food and drinks from Skid Row Coffee and our sponsors at Pine and Crane and Heirloom LA...pine and crane, heirloom LA, los angeles, would works...inspiring speeches from Artisans past and present...diane, offerman woodshop, wouldworks...awards and recognitions for our outstanding community partners...awards, heirloom LA, wouldworksshirley, award, artisan would worksand a photobooth that captured all kinds of silliness.
