magic spaces & modern heirlooms

the workshop

Located in beautiful Oakland, California, we harbor the tools and experience to realize your wildest dreams. With close relationships to countless other Bay Area designers & fabricators of all mediums, if we can't build it, we'll connect you with someone who can.

Committed to sharing knowledge, we work with emerging craftspeople to pass on the skills that many generous people have provided us. A foundation in equity is found through the employment of a diverse and magical cast of characters.
