Workshop13 is honored to be a grant recipient for the One Stop for Growth grant for Underutilized Spaces from MA Development. This grant is for the first stage of a sprinkler system for our 125 yr old building. This is huge for us!


Wishing you all a harvest of blessings, good health and good times.
- Your friends at Workshop13


The giving season has arrived! A very generous donor has offered a $10,0000 match for funds raised from now until the end of 2021! So your gift will be doubled!

Workshop13 is here and thriving thanks to the generosity of our supporters. Without your help we could not stage live music and theater productions, display art exhibitions, offer classroom instruction, put on music festivals, or make public art installations—the costs would simply be too great.

We realize there are many worthy giving causes, and we truly appreciate your choice to support the arts and Workshop13.

With gratitude and well wishes,

Marie Lauderdale
Executive Director
