We are looking for workaway people to help us November 13th through the 22nd 2017.
My husband and I are technical artists in New Orleans who also run a vibrant vacation rental. We have a fabrication shop about a 2km from our home and rental. At our fabrication shop we build amazing bike-centric contraptions and other professional creative pieces as well as work on bikes. We have all sorts of fun and interesting projects!
The rental is 2.5 km from the French Quarter and has 2 two-bedroom apartments. Each apartment can hold up to 10 people. Here we are improving the property to be more artsy and eco friendly. There are both mundane and exciting projects to work on at the proprty.
More than all of this, we are integrated with the creatives through out the city and we enjoy hosting people from all over the world. We would love to show cool folks some of the local life of this awesome city.
Our place offers room for a group of people to stay in their own apartment. Or indivudually, it can be a shared spaced with a private bedroom. You will have projects that fit your skill level and no more than 5 hours a day of work. That will give you plenty of time to explore the city using one of our borrowed bikes. Most definately, You’ll have a lot of fun on this workaway!!
We are especially interested in groups of 4 or more, but we will also warmly consider individuals as well as couples. Duration of stays will usually be Monday through Thursday, it will depend on the week and what is going on in the city.

New Orleans is a creative place that offers music, art, cullinary and historical culture. We know a lot of people in the city and we can direct you to the things that interest you the most. We can also show you a side of New Orleans that is deeper than what tourist get to expirence.
We are happy to teach some fabrication skills or inspire folks by working on one of our large scale (sometimes small scale) art projects.
Projects are at your skill level and we don’t mind teaching you a few new things. If you have a skill set to offer, please tell us about it and we may have something for you. Or if you are inquiring as a group, we can have a project for all of you to work on together or assign singular projects. Nothing is to difficult and we are easy to please.

Both units have what you need to prepare simple meals including a microwave. Both apartments have towels, bedding, washer, dryer, and AC/Heat. There is a nice porch to enjoy and bicycles available to borrow. We are pet friendly but insist that your animal is well behaved and there are efforts made, like covering the furniture, to reduce the mess that comes from shedding hair.
