Workingman Collective is a collaborative group of artists and other professionals whose membership, goals and missions change with each project. They are interested in process, invention, chance, and the public.
Workingman Collective was formed in 2005 by Tom Ashcraft and Peter Winant, and were soon joined by Janis Goodman. Tom, Janis and Peter conduct significant individual studio practices that involve a broad range of traditional materials and fabrication techniques and they draw upon their diverse conceptual exploration and communication through form as an intrinsic foundation of their collaborative practice. Peter and Tom have also been committed to the ethic of collaborative art practice for 30 years through their work with Jersey Devil Design/Build Architecture, Dog Dream Project, Art Attack and Floating Lab Collective.
