Hi! I'm Liz Wright, the founder and creative force behind Assembly.
I grew up in Ohio, lived in Portland, Oregon for quite a while, and recently relocated to sunny Las Cruces, New Mexico. I have a long history of creative projects and pursuits and consider myself a lifelong learner.
Since 2016, I've been bringing people together to learn new skills in a fun social environment, both in-person and online, with Assembly.
From starting with occasional pop-up workshops at local venues in Portland, to running my own full-time classroom studio (Assembly PDX), and then shifting to the virtual space in 2020- it's been a rewarding and exciting journey so far.
Not to say that running a business through a global pandemic has always been stress-free (yikes!), but the enduring universal human need for connection and creativity has kept Assembly successfully afloat and sailing onward.
I spend my days shipping out supply kits to accompany our classes, booking and teaching private events for corporate groups, and periodically posting virtual class schedules open to the public.
Because Assembly now hosts classes in a virtual space, this allows you and I to join in from anywhere!
The online format is perfect for most corporate private events, bringing together staff scattered across the country working from home to bond over a shared creative experience. We've had the pleasure of working with large companies such as Google, Square, Adobe, and Robinhood as well as smaller non-profits, agencies, and colleges.
Hope to see you for some quality craft time together soon!
