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.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our studio contact us today and stop by to look at the space. We do have a wait list for artists who are interested in joining us in the future.

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.


Upcoming Events and Classes

First Friday Happy Hours

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

Join us June 2nd for our First Friday with Jay Carlton and his amazing books that he writes and illustrates himself.

Jay will give a dramatic (over the top) reading of his two newest children’s book, “King of the Castle” and “A Better Place”. This will be the first public showing of “A Better Place”.

As usual we will have food, drinks and friendship to share!

A little bit about Jay’s books:

“King of the Castle” is about a willful, little boy with a colorful imagination, who doesn’t listen to his mother and wants to be in charge of everything around him. After trying over and over to be the boss of everything, from his school to the whole wide world, he learns the love and protection from his mother is what he really needs.

“A Better Place” is about a bald man, living in a black and white forest, who desperately wants colorful hair. After learning how to grow amazing, colorful hair he reluctantly feels the need to give it away, to the black and white world around him, to help make it a better place, only to continuously be left where he started, sad and bald.

Learn how to make a bar necklace with your favorite affirmation or loved ones name! Choose from sterling silver or 14k gold filled and an assortment of natural stones.  Each person in this class will learn how to hand stamp up to 3 bars and wire wrap stones to complete a necklace to take home.
