We host groups of York's makers and doers, who give brief lectures around the theme of CRAFT.

Our speakers come from varied backgrounds, but they all work systematically and intentionally to create visceral experiences.

Our next event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 25 at Warehaus (formerly LSC Design), 320 North George Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. and presentations begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Parking and entrance are on the Beaver Street side of the building. Please save the date and join us for another evening of inspiring stories.

Admission is free, and no ticket is required.

Dave Bradley

From Mass Production to Hand Craftsmanship

Theories, practices and methods of volume production have always seemed second nature to Dave Bradley. A near lifetime spent in the manufacturing world cultivated his recent fascination with how things were made prior to modern technology and equipment. His love for music and fabrication combined a few years ago when he taught himself how to build a guitar.  Follow his journey as he explores the art of hand building stringed instruments.

Dave Bradley is the owner of a manufacturing firm. He enjoys woodworking, constructing guitars, blacksmithing, design, fabrication and building almost anything in general. Growing up in Schuylkill County, PA, and spending the last few years in New York City, Dave moved to the York area in mid-2016 and just finished rebuilding his 1800s farmhouse.

Not your parents' wedding photography.

Reaching Out and Into the Community

What is possible? Easy answer. Anything. Even with young children? Easy answer. Absolutely. Anything is possible when individuals and groups are given the time and space to think big, leverage their talents, and pursue their passions. Reaching out and into the community creates realities for individuals. Amy loves to be a part of this process. The part that opens the space up to let the goodness in others flow over.

Drawing people together to create, learn, and grow together is what brings Amy Musone joy.
