Check out a few photos and video from our first (and delicious) discovery workshop of 2013, at Woodblock Chocolate. We had an incredible turn out and walked away with many tasty treats.
Many thanks to Charley and Jessica Wheelock for opening their doors to our community of makers, and for teaching us about the incredible world of chocolate.

The creativity and generosity of the Portland design community never ceases to amaze me. Our friend Dave Selden, creative director at Pop Art as well as an avid homebrewer and artist, has donated some of his chocolate tasting journals for our Woodblock Chocolate workshop this Thursday.
