We're open to the public on September 25th, 2014 as part of the Detroit Design Festival's night Eastern Market After Dark. We open our studios so you can see how we print, sew, finish our products, meet the makers and workers, and buy some great stuff directly from us, including some that are unavailable anywhere else!
We do this every year so far and it's our favorite event. Not only do we get to meet a lot of cool people who are interested in art and design, but we also get to show you around! We really do print everything by hand without machines, and it really us just us in an art studio that's inside a former furniture factory in Detroit proper. Come see us!
Here are the particulars:
The Third annual Eastern Market on September 25th, Detroit’s premiere annual open house tour of historic Eastern Market’s creative venues returns with over 30+ venues opening their doors to 3,000+ patrons, including rare & exclusive behind-the-scenes peeks into the studios, workshops, galleries and more that make up the diverse collective of Detroit businesses and creative hubs.

We're listed in all programming as Cyberoptix/Bethany Shorb - that's us! (Well Done Goods is a line within the Cyberoptix Tie Lab collection.)
You can find our studio at 1440 Gratiot Ave, 2A, Detroit, MI 48207. Enter in the back of the building - turn on Service Street from Gratiot directly or from Russell St. Look for the giant "1440" by our metal stairway. It's on the second floor, walking - sorry, no elevator! (It's an old building.)
