Did you know there's a thriving community of artisans working out of a 10,000-square-foot collective creative space in Brooklyn? Cheddar visits the SPark Workshop in Sunset Park, New York to talk to its president, and some of the artisans who call it home. Gary Oshust started the company six years ago after struggling to find studio space for sculpting in New York.
Cheddar's Brad Smith speaks to Oshust about the logistics of developing the massive shared space. It includes a woodworking shop, conference room, and individual storage spaces. There are also private and semi-private studios ranging from 200 to 400 square feet.
We also catch up with some of the artisans as they work on their crafts. Grain Control's John Harris and Justin Davis discuss their custom woodworking company, and working with clients like Spotify. Fallen Industry's Paul Kruger describes finding new uses for locally-sourced fallen trees.
