Spring Maker Series at Makeshift Society

Skill Exchange is teaming up with Makeshift Society in Hayes Valley, for an exciting lineup of workshops, tastings, cocktails and conversation.

We’re kicking off this season of making with a party on Friday, May 17th from 7-9PM at Makeshift Society. The evening will feature skill demonstrations from This Humble Abode, Project Juice, Embrace Health & Nutrition, Mission Community Market and others. Join us for cocktails, meet the teachers, learn seasonal tips and swap skills with other makers!

We’re teaming up with San Francisco’s most creative coworking space to offer an engaging series of evening workshops to inspire your senses and help jumpstart fun DIY projects and new culinary adventures. Join us to uncover the basics of custom upholstery for your next DIY home project on May 23rd, then explore regional Italian cheeses with our favorite cheese monger on May 30th. The grand finale on June 13th will include a cocktail-infused lesson on bitters, plus learn trades secrets from our seasoned bartender. Every workshop will include conversation and lots of not-to-be-missed skills!
