From the Bench studio tours

We invite you to join us for this series of half hour studio visits with SFCB community members where we open up our studios and take part of our lunch break together. Grab a sandwich and stop on by the first Thursday of each month at 12:30pm Pacific time. Registration for each event opens about two weeks prior.
