Pretty Deadly Presents

Pretty Deadly Presents is a series of workshops showcasing the passions, hobbies, talents and new business ventures of our amazing members! We provide the platform and support, and then we step aside and let our featured workshop leader take over and wow the crowd! It’s a great way to showcase new ventures, take a concept out for a test drive, or simply share passions with your local community. Everything from hand poke tattoos, burlesque basics, learning calligraphy, and writing your own rules, come join us to learn something new, have fun, make friends, and kick ass!
