Mission + Vision + Philosophy

To provide the tools, materials, education and an inspired environment for people craving a creative outlet. To inspire greater vision, connection to source and process with an emphasis on sustainability. 

The focus will be on textile arts including, sewing, weaving, printing and natural dyeing with further exploration in painting, drawing, poetry and more. The intention is to blend different mediums to discover new forms of creative expression.

Community, connection and reciprocity. Our connection to earth is what sustains us. Let’s explore and deepen this connection by paying close attention to the materials we’re using with a reverence for the source. Let’s also explore ways to give back and to give thanks for the beauty and joy this process offers. This space will serve as a think tank for ways we can regenerate the earth, either by giving and supporting people who dedicate their lives to healing the earth, or by envisioning our own creative ways to serve.

The Workspace

This shared workspace is located adjacent to Wilder Goods. We are located in the Emerson Galleria Hall, a hub for arts and culture. We are offering this space, fully equipped to people who are looking for a creative outlet yet can’t commit to a full school program, or their own studio. 

The space is approximately 400 sq ft. with great light and high vaulted ceilings. It  includes one large community work table, a sewing station, weaving station, storage for art supplies and a lounge area for sharing work and critiques. To ensure participants get the best use of the space, there will a cap on the amount of people present at any given time. While the tools and materials are mostly geared toward the textile arts, many other art forms such as drawing, painting and writing are invited and encouraged. 

The space will be for a select group of members with an option for drop-ins depending on space and availability of tools. If you are interested in membership, please email Mariah at info@shopwildergoods.com
