This is a great d.i.y. art space/infoshop/showspace.
The Playing in Sand Collectiv presents:
Werkshop Museum & The Galley @ 293 Squid Row (Downtown) Santa Cruz, CA.
Hours: 2:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. most days
email: playinginsand [at] gmail.com

This is a great d.i.y. art space/infoshop/showspace. Werkshop Museum has been open since October 2005. In January 2006 they acquired an adjacent space (the Galley) with a music room/show space and a d.i.y. art gallery to raise funds to support the project. They host a variety of regular freeskool classes, for example: figure drawing, music jam sessions, stencil making, block prints, and yoga. They have allocated a section for anarchist books and zines to be sold. A really fucking good selection. This a place that should definately be visited upon your arrival to Santa Cruz.

From the Playing in Sand Collectiv on their space:

"The P.S.C. maintains two facilities on Squid Row Alley;

Werkshop Museum: classes/workshops, presentations/discussions, independent practice. Within is a permanent collection of local artwork, a cache of creative materials, and an infoshop with radical literature.

The Galley: textile workshop, sound-lab, trading post. The P.S.C. offers opportunities to learn classical techniques as well as sharing experimental approaches using salvaged materials. On the second Sunday of every month we come together to host an event with workshops, food, and performances to represent these concepts and build creative momentum."
