Here at Etsy, we love a good reinvention story. Today our friends at Makeshift Magazine, the journal of hidden creativity, share a tale of a destitute steel mill’s evolution into a community space for industrial art: the Steel Yard. In fostering the industrial arts and incubating small business, these entrepreneurs are working to cultivate an environment of experimentation and a community strengthened by creative networks. It’s a beautiful thing.
