Y'all. Makeshop Winter Open Studio ends today and we're hella sad, but looking back on all of the great events that have been hosted here in the past few weeks, we're so proud of and grateful for all the creative, industrious folks who've brought their ideas and passions into Makeshop and created some truly unique events. #. We do this project to give back to the creative community that has always supported us, but we struggle to give more than we receive from you amazing change makers in CWV. Every event fills us up with good vibes and hope for the future 💙💙 #. Special shout-outs to our recent hosts: @domenicazqueen who's ColorInn pop-up drawing studio still lifes blow us away every time // Literacy Volunteers of Kanawha County & AmeriCorps' Erin McGrath who's Beloved Community panel discussion brought together leaders from all over the city to meditate on how to make Charleston a more beloved community // Women's Health Center of WV, @bossbabeswv, @queerappalachia & @travelinappalachiansrevue who taught us how to put together a zine, abortion activist style, celebrating access to reproductive healthcare in WV // and @dottiethepsychic who told us Native American stories about Grandmother Spider and taught us to make beautiful dreamcatchers celebrating that myth. #. Stay tuned for what's next out of Makeshop! Don't worry - we're not going anywhere. We'd miss y'all too much. 😘💙 #creativecommunity #goodbyefornow

🖤”We are of the beloved community. We are small and not flawless, but the beloved community exists right here in this room. . In West Virginia it’s time to say —This is fertile ground, we’re going to hold your hand and lead the way.” #. Thanks for the amazing conversation to all the panelists @jennpharrcharlestoncitycouncil Councilwoman Jennifer Pharr, Civil Engineer Isaac Fadiga (calling both wv and the Ivory Coast home), local west-sider Mavery Davis of Cooperative Central Appalachia, @ywcausa’s Jennifer Goddard, Reverend John Sylvia, @covenant_house wv Asst. Director David Bennet, @recoverypointwv Jennie Hill, and @acluwv ED Joseph Cohen— for your empathy, your work in our community, and your good trouble. #. Special thanks to Literacy Volunteers of Kanawha County for organizing this panel talk and book drive in honor of Dr. King’s Beloved Community. Humbled to host conversations like these at #makeshop. #. Dr. King envisioned “the Beloved Community as a society based on justice, equal opportunity, and love of one's fellow human beings. ... Fundamental to the concept of the Beloved Community is inclusiveness, both economic and social.” #lookingatappalachia #therealwestvirginia #belovedcommunity

Winter is the time to come together, to celebrate one another, to be thankful. We’re so thankful for neighbors like Deanna, who hosted this amazing holiday neighborhood dinner full of collard greens and baked Mac+Cheese, thankful for all the kids running around our studio all night, thankful for Janae the most incredible 13 yr old artist and neighbor- who’s always watching over her four sisters and wants to come take a digital design workshop at MAKESHOP next year! And thankful for every human that’s helped us make The MAKESHOP Project real this year. 🖤🖤🖤🖤 Hearts overflowing with all these smiles. 🖤🖤🖤〰️
