We offer small-class-size, hands-on workshops on wide variety of creative subjects taught by some of the Bay Area's most knowledgeable artists and craftspeople. Whether it's paint, textiles & fiber arts, home decor or jewelry (and more!), we have a unique experience just waiting for you. Most classes require no prior knowledge and all materials are always provided.
At Craft+Work we believe everyone is the creative type.
