Meet Studio 45!

The creative clubhouse dedicated to people and businesses making real, tangible products. And our venue sponsor for this year's Spring Empty Bowls Fundraiser on May 4th. Located at 45 29th street next door to the Front Porch.

We sat down with founder Nate Padgett and asked him our favorite 10 questions.

1. Where are you from and how long have you been in the Bay Area? 

Nate: I'm from the Bay! I've lived here all of my life, except for 10 years from 2011 to 2021 in NYC/Brooklyn.

2. What music have you been listening to lately? Is there an album that has been on heavy rotation? 

Nate: I've been listening to an eclectic playlist. Mostly Turnstile and SZA albums on rotation.

3. What made you decide to become a small business owner? 

Nate: I've wanted to be an entrepreneur since I was 5 years old and visited my mom's office. She worked at a bank and managed a team. I love that they seemed like a family. 

4. Are you a fan of any specific art movement? 

Nate: Big fan of DIY electronics and avant garde creative technology.

5. How do you find ways to incorporate art into your life?  

Nate: We host art shows at Studio 45 all the time! And try to be a resource for artists.

6. What is your favorite small business and what do you like best when you go there? 

Nate: I love this place called Splitrock in Fairfax, CA. It's a bike store, restaurant, and tap room. Great vibes, great food and drink, great bike parts and accessories. It's also a gathering place for the entire town (super family friendly)

7.Have you ever worked in clay? 

Nate: Never worked in clay :( But have worked in metal, wood, plastics, etc.

8. Desert Island or crowded city? 

Nate: Crowded city! I love cities sooooo much. So much human potential hyper concentrated in a single place. 

9. Garfield or Odie? 

Nate: Odie.

10. Dark chocolate or Milk? 

Nate: Dark.
