hello!

Meet the Broad Squad

While each of us have a committed practice and a dedicated workspace, we collectively made the decision to unite under one roof for three purposes: to hold each other accountable to our work, to challenge each other’s practices to grow, and to work together to share and promote that mission for others. We have a broad range of talents and work in many mediums.

Location

Springdale General

 

Our studio is a 1600 square foot open floor plan at Springdale General in East Austin! We split the space between our five resident artists and have a community workshop area, private bathroom, and kitchenette. On a day-to-day basis, our studio is a closed working space with retail by appointment, but we open our space to the public for events, pop-ups, and our wide array of craft-based workshops, which can all be viewed on our workshops and events pages!
