The workshop was held in a wonderful space in Liberty Station. I was so impressed with the way this decommissioned Naval base was transformed into a vibrant area that has spaces for art-related nonprofits, restaurants and grocers, bars, condos, and I even spotted North Sails, which are the brand of sails I used to have on my former boat. That was fun to see.
