Also in Our Artisans
In the last year, during COVID, David says his living situation became dire and he knew he needed help. He has always loved making things and working with his hands, so he Googled ‘woodworking’ and ‘homeless,” and learned about Would Works.
E'dran is an artist and a self described adventurist who is looking to re-enter the work force. His Would Works goal is to pay off his past due rent, but in the process he's been learning from the wood "...now that I started working with this wood, I ended up buying two plants! And it trips me out--the little small things like that, where you really start to appreciate-- because even though its wood, its life."
Shirley is the bedrock of the Would Works shop. She started as an Artisan in 2017 and in 2021 the Lead Artisan position was created to recognize her leadership on the shop floor. Shirley loves to sand and has a keen eye for detail, she also supports and guides new Artisans as they develop these skills.
