We are going city-wide this year, and taking our pre-Derby workshops on the road with Philadelphia Brewing Co! We will still have three awesome workshops offered in the Kensington, Fishtown, and Port Richmond neighborhoods, and we have also added events at art galleries, bike shops, and maker spaces in West Philly, Old City, and South Philly. These workshops have a little for everyone – great for beginners or experienced Sculpture Derby teams. And the best part? Each workshop will be followed by an after-party featuring PBC beers!
