Design Week Portland


During one week in October, Design Week Portland explores the process, craft, and practice of design across disciplines as seen through the lens of our city’s most vibrant independent programming. The Beauty Shop is proud to be participating in two Design Week Portland Events:

Open House

Thu 10/10, 4-7pm

We welcome you into our studio to take a closer look at where the magic happens. There may be snacks. Perhaps chocolate. While you're here, make sure to visit our neighbors, Same Page Studio, who are also holding their official open house and new studio party.


Serious and Dangerously Fun: Play

Fri 10/11, 12-1:30 PM

A one hour session that's focused on producing a set of insights into the playful mind.

Workshop Instructors: Shawn Petersen, Jen Thomas and Josh Boston

The hour and a half will be spent investigating playfulness in the creative process by tapping into your creative genius (the 3-5 year old you) through a series of short exercises. It's a collaborative project, based around the theme of “PLAY” at the end of the workshop, participants will have created a kind of manifesto to share with the creative community.

Final output is TBD but will combine the participants insights as a sharable document (deck of cards, poster, book, etc.)
