You know that feeling when you get into kind of a lull? Your business is ticking along but it's been awhile since you've felt really psyched about it?

Sometimes, that simply means you need a break. (Remember that if you feel lazy, it might mean you're working too hard.) But other times, it means it's time to go looking for inspiration rather than waiting for it to come to you.

Here at Workshop, one of the ways we do that is by getting on a call — with you! We love talking with our members and the maker community, whether it's for a chat, an official interview or one of our events or get-togethers. There's something about that human connection that always gets us excited to do more.

Her efforts to connect Indigenous women artists and find ways for them to reclaim and share their cultural heritage — not to mention start businesses — have borne some amazing results.

We've got some new projects of our own in the pipeline that we're excited to share with you, too — just not quite yet. Stay tuned for that.

Yours in making,

Co-founders Corinna vanGerwen and Kat Tancock
