What is the most fun about volunteering at the Workhouse?
The guests and patrons. As a resident artist I sit gallery duty in W-7 five shifts a quarter and find the visitors endlessly curious and insightful. I love participating in the fundraisers such as the Gala and Collect and find our community supporters to also be endlessly fascinating people.
Did you learn a new skill or make any new friends while volunteering at the Workhouse?
I’ve become a much better sales person, for myself and our products as well as teacher. It’s not about selling to make money as much as the mission of the Workhouse. Once a visitor understands what a treasure we are, the rest is an easy sell.
What is your favorite volunteering activity at the Workhouse (you can list as many as you want)?
Events such as Brew Fest
Demos of my craft for events
Would you recommend friends or family to volunteer at the Workhouse?
