Pleasant Plains Workshop renovations finished, now open -- with new shared office space for creatives

You may remember a few weeks ago that I wrote about the Pleasant Plains Workshop, a cool spot that serves as a gallery, gift shop, event space, studio for artists and place to host art classes at 2608 Georgia Avenue NW.

They launched a crowd fundraising campaign to expand and upgrade their facilities, and this past weekend they had a launch party. They have a new resident artist, more space, and have also launched a shared workspace called The Ranch! for start-ups, artists, techie people and the like. The project sounds pretty cool, and you can read more about it here.

Aside from funding office furniture for The Ranch!, the $7,600 raised also paid for more equipment, like work tables and an exposure unit, labor for plumbing and electrical work, and a new mural on their front door.

They're open every Thursday and Friday from 2-7pm and Saturday from 1-6pm. Stop by and say hello!
