EVENT DETAILS

When Creatives Meet

An after-hours gathering for skill-seekers expanding their creative knowledge and expertise.

The Concept

What started out as a simple idea, conceived in a small studio at an even smaller conference table, soon became a thriving, monthly event where creatives of all backgrounds could convene to learn about a skill from industry experts.

The Creation

To curate an original experience, we reached out to the furthest corners of the creative community, approaching denim professionals, screen printing champions, hand-lettering gurus, latte art masters and illustration geniuses – just to name a few.

The Creatives

Curating an educational, creative event can be a difficult undertaking, but our presenters combine trailblazing teaching styles and expert craftsmanship to represent a disposition unique to Night School, one that embraces both originality and ingenuity.

Events

On the first Thursday of every month, our primary objective is to respect these arts, not only as skills, but as legitimate businesses that contribute to our community.
