Pop-Up Institute for Craft and Ingenuity rolls into Hollywood

August 12, 2013|By Carren Jao

DIY gets a new HQ as Hand-Eye Supply, a Portland, Ore., purveyor of shop tools and artisan gear, takes up residence for a month at Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood starting Friday.

“We wanted to get the Urban Outfitters crowd excited about the process of making and of thinking about where their products come from,” said Lyndsey Lee Denyer, who is heading up Hand-Eye’s Pop-Up Institute for Craft and Ingenuity.

After a kickoff event featuring Santa Barbara-based letterpress studio Tabletop Made and music by DJ Neil Schield of Origami Vinyl, the Pop-Up Institute for Craft and Ingenuity will be serving up a month of films, talks and workshops, including Jimmy N’ Adi’s platonic speed dating for creatives on Sept. 8; designer open mike night by de Lab, Design East of La Brea, on Sept. 12 (Full disclosure: de Lab founders are L.A. at Home contributors); and woodworking sessions led by Offerman Woodshop from Sept. 14 to 15 (yes, Offerman as in Nick Offerman of "Parks and Recreation").

“We wanted to build a place that promotes dialogue between people who love to make things,” Denyer said.

Everyone, from die-hard makers to dabbling designers, is welcome at the pop-up, which will be open through Sept. 15. More details on the Hand-Eye events page.
