at the tannery arts center

The Working Studios at the Tannery opened in 2012. The 28 Working Studios are home to Tannery World Dance & Cultural Center, Radius Gallery, Camp Tannery Arts, Joy Labz and more. The studios are open to the public for limited hours during the week and during special events. Events at the Working Studios include:

  • First Friday Santa Cruz – individual and group studios  open their doors to the public during the evening hours on the first Friday of each month.

  • The Winter Art Market and Spring Art Market occur annually on the first weekends of December and May.

The historic Beam House and Tanyard Buildings were renovated and opened in 2012, and house the Working Studios at the Tannery. Utilizing grant funds, the City of Santa Cruz rehabbed the buildings to construct working studios, a courtyard, and a café.
