What is CraftJam

CraftJam offers real world DIY workshops where anyone can come to be creative, gather with friends, meet new people and have fun in a upbeat environment.

We offer courses where people can make great projects from start to finish with quality supplies. The final handmade items are something that attendees want to wear, decorate their homes with or share with friends and family.

We are building a specific CraftJam experience that can be recognized and taken anywhere—to homes, private parties, and offices. Currently NYC only.
