the alpha workshops

based in new york city, the alpha workshops is an interesting and inspiring organization ~ a non-profit started in 1995 that trains and employs people living with hiv/aids in the decorative arts. and this isn't some half-hearted effort. their work is exceptional and significant. they will create fully custom, one-of-a-kind finishes and furnishings, and they offer a ton of ready made products too ~ gorgeous wallpaper, lighting, decorative finishes, gilding & restoration in the highest craftsmanship. an entirely impressive company!
