Panel discussion with A Work­shop of Our Own (WOO, for short.) WOO, based in Balti­more, MD, is a support­ive wood­shop and educa­tional space run by and for women and gender non-conform­ing crafts­peo­ple. We opened the doors in our 6400 sq ft wood­shop in April 2017, with a mission to train and support people of under­rep­re­sented genders in the field of wood­work­ing and furni­ture making. When the covid-19 pandemic hit, we temporar­ily closed the doors on our phys­i­cal wood­shop, and set to work refo­cus­ing our orga­ni­za­tion’s mission in the virtual sphere. In doing so we learned more about both our local Balti­more commu­nity and the commu­nity of women and gnc crafts­peo­ple all over the world.

No prerequisites for this panel. All you need is a computer and a good internet connection!

WOO is a non-profit safe space for training underrepresented genders in our field. As such, enrollment is limited to non-binary, trans, and woman-identifying folks over the age of 18.

All class times are in U.S. Eastern Time.

Sarah Marriage, WOO's founder, is a maker of fine furniture and other wooden objects. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Sarah studied architecture at Princeton University and fine woodworking at The College of the Redwoods (now The Krenov School). She has taught at The Krenov School, Penland School of Craft, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Sarah's work has shown at galleries and trade shows across the US, including Dwell on Design in Los Angeles, ICFF in New York, and Pritam & Eames Gallery in East Hampton, NY.
