The Lemon Collective

Imagine a place where you can spill glitter with abandon, let your creative side run loose, and leave with a fresh skill. 

 

Welcome to The Lemon Collective.

 

In 2016, myself and two female makers in D.C. — Linny Giffin and Kathryn Zaremba — came upon a small, run-down deli for rent on Georgia Avenue. Though the interior needed lots of love, we saw potential. We eventually transformed it into The Lemon Collective, a creative hub where the city’s curious could gather IRL to share their talents and learn from one another.

 

Today, The Lemon Collective serves many purposes: We curate DIY classes on- and off-site led by artists in D.C. and beyond; we organize community events, including letter writing campaigns and a monthly feminist movie night; and we support and consult with creatives on how to translate their skills into a small business.

 

Our efforts have been widely recognized by he Washington Post, Apartment Therapy and Houzz. In 2016, the founders were named Women to Watch by Washingtonian Magazine.
