We don't just teach craft - there are some really important values at the core of everything we do!
We believe that above all else, being curious is what develops your ability to create, and we want everyone to have the confidence to try new things.
We know that giving yourself time to play and experiment is important for any maker. We love the idea of never striving for perfection or comparing our work to others, but instead embracing and celebrating differences.
We are inspired by those around us, the artists, crafters, and makers within our community, and sometimes beyond
We work together to limit our environmental footprint when crafting. Where possible we only use sustainable or recycled materials and limit our purchases of new products.
Playing and experimenting
