Birth-A-Versary Party!

Save the Date for our BIG Labor Day Weekend Celebration

It's a Birth-A-Versary Party All Labor Day Weekend ~ Sept. 5, 6, 7

That's right, you heard us... a Birth-A-Versary.
What's a Birth-A-Versary? So glad you asked.

A Birth-A-Versary is our special way of celebrating the 1st Anniversary of our Tanglewood Works Retail Shop in Edmonston AND the opening of our new Maker Space in Mt. Rainer.

Tanglewood Works has had a fantastic 1st year! We graciously thank our fans far and wide for their support, as well as the talents of so many local artisans! Due to the success of our first year and the high demand for upcycled furniture and artistic instruction; we've grown quickly and expanded four times in 12 months. From opening our retail space, to quickly adding one more room, then another; until we finally grew so large that we grew into a new 3,000 square foot communal Maker Space in Mt. Rainer.

"What a better way to commemorate Labor Day than to celebrate the ONE year anniversary of a local small business while also celebrating its expansion!"
— Sue, Senior Dumpster Diva

We invite you to come celebrate and create with Tanglewood Works!
