We do this by providing accessible, skills-based classes, artist programs, and community events to reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. We’re proud to offer a diverse range of programming from a fully equipped 6,800 square foot studio in Brooklyn, and a 900 square foot studio in Manhattan.
