BareHands Artisans Workshops are drop-in style, go with the flow, creative outlet. Subject matters vary and new projects are added regularly to keep you on your toes. BHA is adding new workshops monthly as an easy way to gather with friends, take time for yourself, and learn in a social, fun no strings attached environment. Workshops can be Art and Health related and will evolve as the studio does. It's also a great way to get involved with less time commitment.
