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 artists teach classes on woodworking, jewelry design, metal fabrication, and many other skills.

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 Brooklyn.  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. 

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

An excellent class with a patient and knowledgeable teacher. My only small issue is the steel used in the class develops rust spots on the finished knife too easily. I would recommend this to anyone interest in learning the basics of knife making.

Fantastic class— Liam helped encourage each participant’s creativity (which led to some really cool looking knives) and did a great job guiding the group through the process. You will feel like you’ve come away with a new skill!

Rose and Chris were great instructors, and the small class had a nice blend of laid back, friendly atmosphere, while keeping us busy and hands on for almost the entire time. Giving us the necessary instruction, while still allowing for us to make our own decisions while working on the tables made for a really fun intro. Thank you!

Loved spending time in the studio and creating some awesome lamps. Really appreciate that the guidance was thorough and helpful, but that the instructors also encouraged us to be creative and come up with our own versions of the lamp design.
