You probably already know that it’s #GivingTuesday today and all across the globe people are donating to organizations and causes they find meaningful. After black Fridays and Cyber Mondays, it’s pretty rad that so many pull out their wallets again to support non-profits all over the world.
That being said…
Here at the Steel Yard there’s a lot of different ways to give and support our local arts economy. So, if you’re not feelin’ like sending us cash money, consider these alternatives….
–BUY WORK, did you know that every year we invite a cohort of working artists to share our studio space and make their work? Join them right here in the Yard this weekend for the Steel Yard Resident Art Sale. We’re talking unique and wonderful ceramics and metal work. You’ll be supporting local artists in their craft and who knows, may walk away with that perfect holiday gift. Here’s more info about the sale.
–MAKE A PRIVATE REQUEST, do you need custom metal work, pottery, jewelry? How about repairs or something? A piece of your garden, home, or office? Consider making a private request through our website. Private requests connect you with our network of artists and makers in the area. Private requests are independent contracts between you and the fabricator. By commissioning work you are supporting local, small businesses and independent entrepreneurs. To make a private request, go here!–SHARE YOUR STORIES, write a facebook/ yelp/ google review. Tell the world why you love the Steel Yard, or about that event you went to, or that course you took. Do you have a particular story that you wanna share with us- email it over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, cause we wanna hear it!
–GOT COOL STUFF? Hammers, metals, materials, tools, machines?? As a community space, everything we have, we share! We can’t take everyone’s stuff but if you have something you think we could use in our shop give us a holler at email@example.com and we’ll let you know if we could use it!
-And you know… if at the end of the day- you’d still like to make a cash DONATION and support our programs, courses, and studio- that’s awesome. Making a donation to the Steel Yard is easy, just go here.
