Formerly-incarcerated entrepreneurs share craft expertise while attendees of all ages create home furnishings sold to the public, with proceeds going to the non-profit.
On Saturday, Aug 17th, Los Angeles design guru Cisco Pinedo, creator of MADE in LA and CEO of Cisco Brothers and Cisco Home, will be hosting a maker workshop at the award-winning LA Design Center in support of Refoundry, an innovative non-profit in criminal and economic justice that Mr. Pinedo co-founded.
Refoundry trains formerly incarcerated people to repurpose discarded materials into home furnishings, and mentors them into their own businesses or career-track jobs.
Free, and open to all ages, Refoundry Workshops bring together local artisans, designers, criminal justice advocates, business/municipal leaders, and members of the LA community to experience a micro-version of the Refoundry craft and entrepreneurship program. Completed pieces are available for sale after the Workshop, with proceeds going toward the launch of Refoundry’s next LA cohort, launching at the end of August 2019.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
