Open Studios Oct 27-28

Come by my cozy little studio and get a peek into my process! Come for a cup of tea; stay for a paper-folding demo. This will be a low-key, intimate vibe -- keep me company while I make pieces for the holidays. For those eager to get a head-start on holiday shopping, I'll have a handful of pieces ready to purchase. My studio is dog- and kid-friendly.

My studiomates J·Liston Design and Niki Ulehla will both be showing work as well! 

WHEN: 11am-6pm, Saturday Oct 27 & Sunday Oct 28
WHERE: 1426 Minnesota St, San Francisco, CA 


CAN'T MAKE IT? I'll also have a booth at West Coast Craft Winter '18 Nov 17-18 at Fort Mason! Come shop then!

PARKING: You can park in any of the spots labeled "ShopFloor" or "Harmonic." There are spots available on both sides of the building (Minnesota St and 26th St). 

FINDING MY STUDIO: Walk in through the giant roll-up garage door. Come up the stairs. My studio is the last one on the right.

MAKE A DAY OF IT: As long as you're in the neighborhood, check out some of my favorite local gems:

- Grab a beer from my friends at Harmonic Brewing!
- Get your caffeine fix at Philz Coffee - Dogpatch Minnesota
- Swing by a dozen galleries at the Minnesota Street Project.
- Try fusion Gujarati food at Besharam.
- Get a pizza or a meatball sub at Long Bridge Pizza Co..
- Savory or sweet pastries at Neighbor Bakehouse.
- Walk your dog to Esprit Park - 20th Street Overpass.
- Shop local makers at The Workshop SF or Industrious Life.
- Go bouldering at Dogpatch Boulders (don't break your ankle there like I did).
- Swing by the Museum of Craft and Design (or at least the gift shop).
