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.
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!
