Hi! We have updated our Terms of Service Privacy Security and Cookies to reflect the new European data protection rules and be GDPR compliant.

Do you know how to design a herb circle? How to make candles using recycled bottles? How to repair a car? Then we’d love to invite you to share your skills at our Experts’ Workbench.

The Experts Workbench is a permanent, living exhibit at our Eco-Hub in San Francisco. We host artisans from many sectors to bring their daily work to our Experts’ Workbench where they give demonstrations and hands-on instruction.

Our goal is to give our visitors, especially apprentice age youth, the opportunity to meet a wide range of chatty, helpful, dignified, inclusive people who are passionate and knowledgeable about their craft.

Our experts have given demonstrations on everything from making things out of recycled materials, repairing furniture and electronics to carving up an entire pig. Visitors have also enjoyed succulent terrarium workshops, demonstrations on how to knit with local alpaca wool and how to make mosaic solar fountains.

If you or someone you know would like to demonstrate a craft please drop us a line at team@matteroftrust.org. We’d love to hear from you.
