What you'll do
You will learn basic woodworking techniques by creating your very own air plant holder. A variety of woods will be available to choose from. You'll create a unique shape for your planter or you can use one of our ready made templates. After cutting out your creation on the bandsaw and shaping it on the belt sander, I will show you how to expertly sand and finish your piece so that you can proudly display your holder at home, or give it as a gift. You'll leave with a finished piece, an air plant, and branded muslin bag.
Sip on single origin coffee from one of DTLA's many coffee shops. Tea will also be on hand if you're not a coffee drinker.
We have spring water, and guests are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle.
I will also provide a selection of easy-to-care-for air plants to showcase in your new planter.
All of my woodworking tools, machines, and finishes will be available for you to learn more about and use.
I am a second-generation woodworker who has been building things big and small all my life. My wood shop is located in downtown Los Angeles, in the bustling Fashion District neighborhood. As a longtime DTLA resident, I can also help you navigate what to do before and after our experience! Feel free to contact me directly about customizing the start time or adding a workshop on a different day.

Where you'll be
The workshop will be help in my studio in Downtown Los Angeles. After you finish your piece, you are walking distance from shopping in Santee Alley, or having a bite in a nearby bistro.
Keep these in mind

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes, things that you don't mind getting dirty. The woodshop is a dusty place! Long hair should be tied back.
