September First Friday

September First Friday is one of the big ones at the Pajama Factory! As you have probably noticed, we don’t go ‘all-out’ for First Friday each and every month, but September is one where we’ll be throwing open the doors and filling the halls with people, art and events, so you’ll want to be there for sure.

You can get more information about which studios will be open as well as other exhibits on the Pajama Factory Facebook event page. Head on over and let us know if you’ll be joining us.

Intro to Tintypes

While tintype photography has been around for 160 years or so, it certainly qualifies as ‘new and exciting’ around these parts.

There’s a workshop coming up in early September where you can learn about the process, take your own tintype, or even sit for a portrait!

Tintypes

Saturday session – Still lifes – Sept 12 – 10 AM to 4 PM Use our props or bring your own to create a table-top set to photograph.

Sunday Session – Portraits – Sept 13 – 10 AM to 4 PM We’ll take turns sitting for a portrait or use a model. If you have vintage or period clothing bring it along.

Maximum enrollment is six. This process is not well suited for young students.

BATHVS

Shana Eichenberg is a tenant who’s used her space in the Pajama Factory to build her bath, body and hair care business from the ground up.

Bathvs, (pronounced ‘bathus’) is all made by hand in her 4th floor studio, where Shana formulates the recipes, produces each batch, packages and ships orders all over the world and works on marketing, both through Facebook, Etsy and now her shiny new website. (She also sells her products at Roots Hair Studio by Karen in building 6 of the factory!)

We’re happy and proud to have Shana and Bathvs as one of our many small businesses at the Pajama Factory—we can’t wait to see what *you* will do here!

Here’s her new site—go take a look!
