The renaissance is here, and it brought ice-cream! So, here’s the idea: Ideas. Unfiltered, unencumbered, and unapologetically enthusiastic ideas. Ideas that lead to grease-smeared hands, lavender sorbet, things that go bang, clouds of steam, those goggle-marks you see on crazy chemistry geeks, and some guy (or girl) in the background juggling and swinging from a trapeze.

We are a collective of intellectual eccentrics, passionate about learning and our various (and yes, I mean various) arts. Walk through our door with an open mind, and you are liable to be whisked off your feet and into a project you’d never have thought up. We encourage communal learning, asking questions, and pushing that red button. Go on. Do it.

If you stick around long enough, you’ll end up being the one creating projects and doing the 3-2-1 countdown for some new toy. Which is exactly what we hope will happen. We aim to be a sustainable ideal, recycling scraps to form new, useful and treasured parts of life. This rings true whether using bits of old snow chains as hanging organizational systems, cracked claw-foot tubs as watermelon planters, or bits of old ideas to get new ones rolling. We compost. We recycle. We garden. We sometimes even don flow-y trousers and sing kumbaya. Well, maybe not that last bit. We want you to want us in your neighborhoods. We want you to send your children to us after school to learn how to have fun self-teaching under our watchful eyes. We want to be a valuable, brag-worthy part of the community, that puts on performances and holds an open door to all interested in becoming capable of creation. Are you interested?

Contact us at, so we can chat about scheduling something cool together.Thanks!

Love, Jigsaw Renaissance
