Experience Dogpatch one of SF’s most vibrant under-the-radar neighborhoods where you’ll have the opportunity to discover your own unimagined skills and creativity. Learn how Makers are banding together with their neighbors to preserve the city’s creative heart and cultural soul! We’ll visit:
Suzy Barnard has observed countless freighters, barges, and tugboats on the bay that inspire her abstract images of the sea, ships, and sky. Her light-infused studio is a sea of color where she mixes and layers paint on canvas and searches “the light particles of water and air for the perfect unattainable spot.”
Kimberly Austin’s magical studio is fragrant with the scent of soaps and perfumes and her stainless steel wax melter pours the most exquisite collection of handcrafted candles. Her vintage presses crank out a rich assortment of ephemera inspired by her collection of rare books and alphabets.
Workshop Residence engages with craftspeople, artists and designers from around the world. They enlist local fabricators and industrial partners to manufacture functional objects for everyday living. They’ll explain how their products are made, then one of their staff will guide you through a customized one-hour workshop.
Rickshaw Bags, a pioneer maker in the Dogpatch neighborhood. This small historic warehouse is where they create custom backpacks, totes, and messenger bags. You can even have them design your own bag! They’re renowned for their sustainable practice of not wasting a single scrap of fabric.
We’ll cap our experience at Magnolia Brewery where the rough-and-tumble industrial vibe looks like it hasn't been touched since the 1930s. We’ll hang with the locals in this former tin can factory to sample their beer and you can stay for dinner at their Smokestack BBQ.
“This was a great day with so much to see and do in Dogpatch. Even though I live in Potrero Hill, it was so much fun getting to know some of the local businesses and see what they offer. The stop at Austin Press was terrific. A sensory experience with the scent of homemade candles, all the antique machinery, restored with love, and so many creative, handmade items. Magnolia Brewery’s ambiance was a great way to finish off the day. I would highly recommend this experience!!”
