handcraft studio school

We first met our good friend Marie a little over ten years ago when we all worked together at Paper Source on Fillmore Street in San Francisco. As we got to know her over the years, we witnessed her incredible artistic talent grow and evolve.

About a year and a half ago, Marie and her friend Aleishall started hosting ladies craft nights every few months. These nights brought women together to socialize, learn a new skill, and walk away with something beautiful that they had made. It came as no surprise to us that Marie decided to open Handcraft Studio School this September in Emeryville, CA to continue on and expand upon this wonderful tradition of teaching, promoting and preserving handcrafts.

September classes at Handcraft Studio School include flower arranging, pom pom making, into to letterpress, tiny piƱata making, calligraphy, and much more!! To learn more & register for a class click here. 

To outfit her space and fund the first month of classes, Marie has started a Kickstarter campaign. She's currently halfway to her goal of $8500, and with five days to go we think she's going to make it! Please consider supporting this exciting project which will benefit so many people in so many ways all around the Bay Area.
