The SLab is a space to learn, experiment, and discover an array of mixed-media skills, through foundational programs, workshops, and events. We open our space to individuals and organizations alike to provide one roof for artistic exploration and professional networking, in effort to connect the artistic and innovative community of Beijing. Whether you are a novice or a master, a craftsman or an entrepreneur, our space is available to both cater to and support your vision, via our in-house foundation courses, workshops, or Co-op program.
[ OUR STORY ]
When we opened our doors in late 2016, we started with what we knew best—teaching sewing and fashion design to adults and kids—as a way to extend our hand to Beijing’s art community and get our grander vision up and moving. We have now expanded our space to actualize our original concept of providing a wide slab for our students to uncover new interests and skills that may help them satisfy their creative endeavors. Since our opening, we have extended our services to a broader artistic and professional community, from providing metalsmithing courses to hosting natural beauty workshops and holiday markets. But before further explaining the many uses of The SLab, let us tell you how we got our name.
