Our studio space gives makers the opportunity to bring ideas to life. We provide classes for creatives by creatives.While working with some of the brightest minds in Brooklyn, we’ve created a studio space that provides room to put our ambitions into action.

Our space is  a hands-on environment in the BK community that nurtures the spirit of getting shit done! If you are a hands-on learner, you’ve found the right community. Our artists teach classes on chocolate making, jewelry design, leatherworking, and everything under the sun.

Each hands-on experience gives you the freedom to explore a new passion, create something of your own, and join our community of makers and creators.

Our classes run from  2-4.5 hours and are taught by experienced makers that live in thrive in BK.  Our small class sizes allow for you to vibe and network with other makers in the studio. Our studio space is an open and fully-equipped environment that gives you the space and resources to build a personal project, put a Kickstarter into action, or simply find a new passion. The Craftsman Avenue membership gives you the space and resources to turn the “I Wish” projects into “I get shit done” projects.

We envision bringing creatives together in an environment that is inspirational, fun, and supportive.

Megan Isaacs is a brilliant and patient teacher. She clearly explains each objective, demonstrates how it's done then personally guides you through each step. She always makes sure that the students are hands on with all tools and materials. She deals with any student error patiently and professionally. The result? A perfect sterling silver ring that my wife shows off to everyone. Nobody believes that I did it all on my own- but I did with Megan's expert guidance.

Josh did an excellent job making the class engaging and fun. You leave with a beautiful frame using a technique not even frame shops use any more.

This was a really fun class and Evan was great. The class could be a bit smaller though, as the actual welding equipment was a big bottleneck.

Our teacher, Evan, was great! He was very clear about how to use the tools, was prepared and was very calm and patient with anxious students...aka ME!
