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.

Excellent teachers and a cool environment in which to learn. The introductory skills in this class are relevant to other metal fabrication projects. I'm planning to take more courses here.

Loved the class. It was laid back but I felt I learned all I needed to make my own designs. The instructore Jeff, and his assistant were genial and helpful. I've already received several compliments on my lamp. Would definitely recommend this class.

I really enjoyed this class. All of the basics of working with stained glass were covered in a way that really made the medium accessible, and the space was fantastic. I will definitely look to take more classes there.

I took Craftsman Ave's "Make a Steel Planter Box (Introduction to Welding and Metal Fabrication)" class this past weekend and had a blast. The instructor was knowledgeable and the perfect amount of hands on. The space is very cool and safety was top notch. This won't be my last time at Craftsman Ave. Thanks guys!

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