The Artisan Work Lab is a makerspace for people to create, craft and upcycle new things out of the raw materials generated from excess free store donations. Members can use the space as a work studio and to teach or participate in a variety of artisan classes.
It is just one component of a larger project called MAKE SPACE: Whittier Free Store and Artisan Work Lab. MAKE SPACE is a creative upcycling center for diverting material goods from the waste stream by redistributing or transforming items back into the community for reuse. We are a project of the Catalyst Network of Communities, a 501c3 nonprofit social impact organization helping you to connect, collaborate, and share resources.
We are located at 12907 Hadley Street (at Comstock), Whittier, CA 90601 in Uptown Whittier.
