Here at theCO, we have a lot of hobbies.
But what's the fun of keeping a hobby to yourself?
We want to give you an opportunity to join in on the fun with our workshops designed to help you learn that thing you’ve always talked about getting into: from social media to screen printing, indigo to 3D printing, photography to coding. We have something for everyone. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today!

Heirloom Photography in the Digital Age | $25
Saturday, July 28 | 10am - 12pm
These days, most of us record precious photographs and videos on our phone cameras. While the quality is markedly better than the VHS tapes of our parents' generations, we're losing the lasting legacy of tangible media. In the digital realm, we often have to scroll through thousands of photos to find one that marks a specific moment or a season.
This workshop will explore ways that we can create lasting heirloom images and videos in the digital age that can be passed down through the generations. We will touch on digital photo organization, photo printing, memory books, and iPhone photography for busy families. Attendees will walk away with an idea of how to create better photos of their families and ensure that those images can stand the test of time.
*All participants should bring their phones (fully charged) and, if available, a personal laptop.
