Small Business Workshops

In addition to being skilled artisans and woodworkers, we are also a small business. Like most art-driven small businesses, we didn’t have much to start with—a handful of furniture pieces, some recycled wood scraps, and local interest in our work. The past few years have been incredibly successful for all of those who had a hand in bringing Expressions Furniture to life. We want to share our experience with other small business owners as a way of passing on this success.

As a means of transferring this knowledge, we host monthly small-business-related workshops for local makers and artists. Here are a few highlights from previous workshops:
