2018-04-19 Craft School 800x510 copy (1)

Craft School in Altadena is a sweet little shop where you can find handmade and vintage gifts and crafting supplies, plus take part in fun, inspiring classes and workshops.

If you don’t have any crafting skills, don’t panic. Craft School will show you that there are many different ways to be creative, help you feel comfortable tapping into your creative side, and inspire you to create every day.

Craft School offers a wide variety of classes ranging from how to paint tiny artworks to crochet. There are also classes in bookbinding, embroidery, quilting, pattern-making, junk and art journaling, and machine sewing.

Gelli plate printing is another crafting experience they offer. If you have no idea what that is, watch this quick tutorial to learn more:

If any of those don’t appeal to you, you can learn how to transform a letter into a beautiful piece of art in the snail mail class. It’s a great way to connect with a penpal.

For children 8 and up, there are daily after-school crafting workshops on bookbinding, machine sewing, weaving, snail mailing, junk journaling, embroidery and more.

The shop also offers open art time on Thursday afternoons, and an open art night with friends on the first Saturday of every month where you can bring any project to work on, or start something new, while hanging out with friends and meeting new crafty people.

Prices range from $20 and up per person for the classes and events, and if you’re already crafty, Craft School is also a retail shop offering you crafting goods to keep you in supply.

When you’re feeling artsy, and you want to break away from the everyday, or need a unique gift or craft supplies, stop by Craft School to find a comfortable place to learn and create even if you didn’t think you could.

The shop is open Tuesday – Friday 11 am – 6 pm and Saturday 12 – 4 pm.
Craft School is located at 2351 Lincoln Ave, in Altadena. For more information call (626) 639-3014 or visit
