Tucked just beneath the Fremont Bridge overpass on North Interstate Avenue sits the Beam & Anchor building, the site of our most recent WeMake Workshop. Part industrial workspace, part stunning retail space, the shop itself is as unique and inspiring as the people who made it possible.
After we learned a bit more about our hosts and their respective crafts, we each got a piece of the Beam & Anchor action—stamping leather, saddling up to the sewing machines, and even sanding and oiling our own ash wood iPhone docks.
Thanks to everyone who came out and got their hands dirty, and especially to Matt Pierce, Leland Duck, and Robert and Jocelyn Rahm for being such cool and gracious hosts!
Be sure to check out the beautiful video recap below, and explore more event photos here and on our Facebook page.

This month’s sketchXchange was very special for a couple of reasons.
Our awesome guests, Josh Kenyon and Colby Nichols of Jolby joined us for a second time since WeMake’s very first sketchXchange last year. We were so thrilled to have them back and hear what they’ve been up to.
The evening consisted of a behind-the-scenes look at their latest children’s book Monsters Under Bridges: Pacific NW Edition. They shared sketches, step-by-step process, anecdotes about how some of the creatures were born, and most of all about how much fun they had while putting the book together. Also, as a bonus treat the author Rachel Roellke Coddingon joined in the fun!
We were so pleased to see many familiar faces—and several new faces this month. We can’t wait to see you again next month for our special edition sketchXchange with Gary Baseman at the Hollywood Theatre. Thank you so much for continuing to make sketchXchange such an incredible time to be inspired, make new friends, and just have a jolly good time.
Thanks again, Jolby for sharing your work with us! Congratulations on another beautiful book release.
