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 and 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.

I really enjoyed the class. Our instructor, Chris was a friendly and chill guy. He kept everything very straight forward and elaborated when we seemed unsure. Though there was a timeframe I never felt rushed and enjoyed the fact that we could all work at our own pace. Chris made sure we understood the dangers/ safety measures before we used each equipment. He gave the freedom for us to feel like we could do/ use each tool on our own but would check in on us from time to time. Thank you for a great class!
