About Our Studio.
Located on vibrant Lakeshore Ave, our Oakland studio was opened in May 2013 by Chelsea Glavinovich McClure and Audrey Mao.
The Oakland studio is Audrey and Chelsea’s third installment in the East Bay. After their first studio was opened in 2006 in Walnut Creek, they opened a second location in San Ramon in 2008. They knew shortly afterwards that Oakland was the next place to expand. With its growing foodie scene, strong local pride, and progressive thinking, Oakland has become the hip destination, offering a great alternative to ever expensive San Francisco.
Audrey, Chelsea, and our entire Oakland team have loved the warm welcome given to the studio by residents and workers who call Oakland home. We look forward to welcoming many more to the Bar Method family and to sculpting seats on the east side of the Bay Bridge for many years to come!
