Workshops

All workshops at Vector Space are open to the public and do not require membership to attend. Many of our students come to learn how to make at Vector Space with no prior experience.

Workshops are short term and usually focus on a single skill. They're a great way to learn something new!

Workshops are scheduled ~2 months in advance. Upcoming workshops are listed below. Click here for a list of all available workshops.
