DBP: Tell us about the programming at The Craft Studio?
LP: We serve kids as young as 18 months, up to adults of all ages. We just hosted an adult workshop where participants painted small plant pots. There are so many different programs that we offer but we are probably most well-known for our parties – they’re so fun and creative.
Any time we’re open people can come in and participate. There’s no time limit, you don’t have to be a member, and there’s no fee beyond the price of the project you choose. There are over 50 projects to choose from and all are designed to be taken home the day-of, so customers don’t have to come back and pick anything up. We run classes and workshops, and host after school classes in the studio as well as off-site programs in local schools.
DBP: What is your mission?
We want to create an experience where people come in, enjoy themselves, and are present with the projects and supplies. Whether a toddler or adult, we want them to have the best time in our open, creative space. Our mottos are “perfect is boring,” and, “there are no mistakes in art.” The Craft Studio is a no pressure space that can be a creative outlet for everyone. Even the interior was created by a beautiful collaboration of artists. Friends and family literally built the studio and did all the painting and decorations for the walls.
