Come join us for the first edition of Good Workshops! 

Jolby & Friends will be joining us to give a talk about ideation and process followed by a small hands-on workshop (so come ready to participate).

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the talk begins promptly at 7:00 pm.

About Jolby & Friends:
We believe that true collaboration is more than just working together. It’s bringing a piece of yourself to the table and abandoning your ego to be a part of something bigger. In our studio collaboration happens at every level of what we do from concept to execution. This is the life of our studio and the identity of who we are: A team of designers, makers, illustrators, thinkers, and wonderers. Never defaulting to one kind of solution, our goal is push the ideas and work to a different place. As a team we accomplish more than any of us could have dreamed on our own. This idea is our foundation and our goal, to collaborate for the better.

About Good Workshops:
Good Workshops is a monthly event held every second Tuesday at Sockeye where PSUGD invites creatives to share their expertise on a topic that will help you become a better maker.
