A Creative Makers Space for Artists in Heart of Bend!Open to the public Monday to Wednesday 12-4

Willow Lane Artist’s Creative Space is a place for creative people to go to work.

Our studio is located in the heart of Bend, close to Downtown, the Old Mill, and right off the parkway.

Stop by and talk to our artists or shop for something unique. We are open Monday to Wednesday 12 to 4, or whenever the open sign is on.

We have happy hours every first Friday from 4 to 6. Join us then for music, drinks and live demonstrations.

 Willow Lane is a large industrial building with tall ceilings and great light. Refinished concrete floors are practical for the working artist,  fresh white walls are ready to hang and display your work, and large spaces for you to spread your work out.

Willow Lane is for the working artist that wants to get out of the secluded work space. This opportunity provides artists with a professional and comfortable space to sell and make their work and interact with clients.

Become a member!

Starting November 1st we have three spaces available. Two 10×12 spaces in our main building for $400 a month and a 7×7 space in the garage area for $220 a month. Join our team of creative and supportive members! Each person that has walked through our doors and worked in this space has grown their business beyond where they started and felt the rewarding impact of sharing a space with other creative business people. We wish the same for you!

 

Upcoming Events and Classes

First Friday Happy Hours

Willow Lane is open from 4 to 6 pm every First Friday of the month.

For our November 3rd event, Dominique Ovalle is showing her artwork, as well as offering space in which to create a gratitude journal. Participants will be able to paint, craft, and collage their gratitude journal. Journals will be available for purchase, or you may bring your own. Enter the DOMKO Gratitude Challenge! For every day in November, participants will be invited to snap a picture of their gratitude journal entry and enter to win a free print from Dominique’s Immortal Diamond collection. Include the hashtag #DOMKOgratitude on Instagram and win!

About the Gratitude Challenge: 

If you struggle with finding satisfaction in life, and want to feel fulfilled, practicing Gratitude is a wonderful way to focus on what abundance is already in your life.

Count your blessings.
If one looks around and only sees what is lacking, one may be setting oneself up to be miserable. When one counts their blessings, even if at the moment, they seem to be few, one can focus on how one is loved, and how the Spirit has already made abundant provision for one’s life. From this opening, the Spirit can pour grace, mercy, and love. Being thankful and manifesting Gratitude is a whole WAY of being! Come, creatively begin living this way!
