We would like to extend a special thanks to our new affiliate, and first donor, Los Angeles Industrial Art Compound. Los Angeles Industrial Art Compound is an studio compound founded by the artist Hacer, and Ashley Lund.
In 2011, upon completion of a year-long demolition / remodel of a former shopping cart plating facility, the compound was re-born as a community of private studios. To further the industrial arts, several studios at the compound offer classes in their field of expertise [blacksmithing, metal smithing, woodworking, welding, etc].
You can check out some of their studios on our posts this Friday, and for more information, check out their website, or email them about their workshops at the address below.
