ABOUT TIN CAN STUDIO
WE BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO MAKE, BUILD, SHOW, AND SHARE IDEAS.
Tin Can Studio is a mobile project space housed in a vintage 18ft Streamline trailer. Our fully mobile portable studio has been designed to transform to accommodate a variety of creative activities, and acts as a incubator, a hub, and an event space. We love to transform and pop-up in unexpected locations, where we can engage with a diversity of communities.
We work with institutions to develop unique programs centered on community building, host our own incredible events and workshops, and create unforgettable experiences for weddings and other celebrations.
