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.

Generally good class but it was freezing inside. Poorly heated which took away from the experience.

It was such an amazing experience! We learned a skill that was seemingly unachievable. But surprisingly, it was so much easier than we thought! We walked away with so much more confidence and elbow grease! Thank you so much for having us, we will be back for more!

Second class we've taken at Craftsman Ave. We had the same instructor and he is great!!! It's hard work, but we love the piece we made! Feels good knowing you made something from start to finish :) Pizza and wine at the end was delicious and a perfect ending to date night!

What a lovely experience! Had a great teacher, felt safe, learned a lot and left with a cool table that I built. The class was small and encouraging. Would absolutely recommend!
