Meet The Makers: B. Finlay Millwork

Posted by Drake General Store, 4 months, 1 week ago

We first came across these two after they built the podiums for Talwst’s “Nubians” installation at the Drake Lab recently, and they’ve been on our radar ever since. Going against the grain in more contexts than one, B. Finlay Millwork are a pair of young entrepreneurs with comparatively old souls, who still believe in the concept of actually touching what you make. In today's Meet the Maker Series post, we sit down with them to find out how business is going, what’s it like working with your sibling, and why (according to them) so much of this city’s character and success is built on the people who call it home.

Meet The Makers: WIOUX

Posted by Drake General Store, 5 months, 3 weeks ago

We’re pretty big fans of Allyson Rousseau’s hand-woven wall hangings over here at DGS, so we figured we’d check in with the multi-talented, multi-disciplinary artist and find out what exactly her weaves were all about.
