Saturdays at the Plains

Most days of the week, Anthony and I are tinkering away in the studio- working on new projects, doing custom jobs, and experimenting with new materials.. On Saturdays, we open our doors to the public so you can see what we’ve been up to and so you can scope out our wares! Posters, tee shirts, original artworks, vintage clothing, and more..

Also on Saturdays we sometimes have guest artists perform, host trunk shows or have drawing sessions.. each week is different. Stay tuned for our upcoming event calendar. To receive emails about our events, sign up by emailing: pleasantplainsworkshop@gmail.com
