Old Mill's Newest Creative Space To Host Open (Work)house on Sat.

Posted By on Fri, Mar 30, 2012 at 9:31 PM

In these economic times sometimes things can feel a little dire. However, all over the country people are looking for, and sometimes finding, the pewter lining. Right here in Bend a pair of local artists working on a new formula that is designed to deconstruct artistic and economic limitations with a bold new experiment in commercial art, design and production, dubbed, fittingly The Workhouse.

Rooted in grass roots solutions, combining community, creativity, resourcefulness, and hard work to help redefine "the good life". Belying the origins of it's name, The Workhouse, love child of Stuart Breidenstein and Cari Dolyniuk, defines this union of elements.

Opening to the public on Saturday, March 31st, it is located in The Old Ironworks District, right next to Sparrow Bakery. It offers eight large work stations/studios, a community table/runway, and an equipped fashion lab which designers can rent by the month, geared to retail sales. As Cari describes it,

Come out and support the birth of this inspiring creative economic model. The grand opening is Saturday, March 31st, from 5pm-10pm at 50 Scott Street . Come prepared to enjoy free live music, with cash to purchase food from the debut of Wide Open Foods, and a beverage cup made by local potter Chad Fox ( one of the founders of the adjacent Cinder Cone Clayworks )  which entitles you to a free beverage,(eliminating disposable cups, are you hearing the theme here? ) as well the locally sourced Work of the denizens of The Workhouse.

If you can't make the opening, regular business hours, starting April 4th,10 - 5 are Wednesday - Sunday. email - aworkhouse@yahoo.com
