Jump Share Studio
If Martha Stewart wanted to shoot a segment in Boise, she’d head straight to the Share studio at Jack’s Urban Meeting Place. The glistening new kitchen boasts a white subway tile backsplash and a gleaming stainless steel hood hovering over a four-burner Dacor range. In addition to ample sinks and storage cubbies, the Share studio also features a large demonstration counter facing the window-lined dining room.
The Share studio is one of five creative studios housed at JUMP, including Move, the dance and fitness studio; Make, the inventor’s studio; Play, the multimedia studio; and Inspire, the writer’s studio.
“All of the studio spaces at JUMP are really designed to provide opportunities for the community to try something new—take a class or program or workshop or experience something that they haven’t experienced before or learn from other individuals,” said Kathy O’Neill, community engagement director at JUMP.
Though programming is still being ironed out for the Share studio, O’Neill said the opportunities are endless—from healthy cooking classes to community competitions like “Iron Chef.”
“We envision a lot of different classes,” said O’Neill. “No one organization will ever call JUMP home, so a lot of classes will be taught by various individuals in the community.”
Abby Fuxan, the long-time chef behind Peaceful Belly’s Farm-To-Fork dinners, has been hired as a studio contractor to develop programming in the space. Classes will be announced when the full JUMP website launches in late spring or early summer.
“All classes will obviously have a different fee based on the length of the class and the ingredients and the time of day, but there will be opportunities on our website for people to register for those classes,” said O’Neill.
