The Looking Glass Workshop is an Indie/Underground music label and art collective.

The Workshop, as an arts collective, had assembled many gatherings throughout the Northeast United States, and has worked with many aspiring artists promoting an experimental intelligentsia. As a sort of art movement, the Looking Glass Workshop embodied no particular style, but rather comprised a multitude of eclectic, self-promoting, and talented artists, poets, writers, film-makers and musicians throughout the Philadelphia area. Some include: Echo Orbiter, The Shiver Bones group (artists), Alka, Trouble Everyday, the Flying People, NetWT and many more, even a wrestler Lobo.

The Looking Glass Workshop was able to elaborate on the late 90's music/art scene already building in the underground. Such events as First Friday art gallery exhibitions and the many music festivals were regular hang outs for members of this diverse subterranean culture. Today, the Looking Glass Workshop seems to have somewhat disbanded, as collectives usually do, with each artist heading in one of a variety of paths.
