Deep Craft Atelier, July 23-August 12: Pop-up Store, Open Studios, Guest Chefs, and Neighborhood Excursions!

We are excited and honored to kick-off our official StoreFrontLab program with Deep Craft Atelier, a three-week artists residency beginning July 23. Deep Craft, led by artist Scott Constable, will launch a line of goods made on site and offered for sale on Saturdays when the space transforms from workshop to pop-up store. 

Deep Craft Atelier will feature Deep Deck, a solid-wood long board made by Constable from reclaimed California woods. Deep Deck, first introduced at SFMOMA in Stephanie Syjuco’s Shadowshop project, reflects the Deep Craft ethos of environmental stewardship and community-scale production that the StoreFrontLab residency celebrates. 

Constable will work in the storefront during a weekday series of open studios, inviting other artists to participate in ‘micro-residencies’ along side him. Deep Craft goods made by Constable and collaborating artists will be sold over three consecutive Saturdays, when the space becomes a pop-up store. Guest chefs will expand the Deep Craft community on Saturdays, serving up their own creations. A percentage of sales will benefit Seven Teepees, a StoreFrontLab neighbor organization supporting youth. 

Deep Craft will also offer Sunday excursions through skate-friendly San Francisco neighborhoods on longboards and other human-powered vehicles. The tours will originate at StoreFrontLab, underscoring the storefront's function as a local marker.

Here are the details on the amazing line-up. We look forward to seeing you over the next few weeks!
