At CraftJam our mission is to offer vibrant and creative ways to occupy our hands and our time.
Some of us were lucky to learn arts and crafts from our grandma who helped us to knit a slightly-too-long or totally unfinished scarf, or crafty Aunt Margaret with cross-stitched pictures of her seven cats. They knew something that more and more people are discovering now: Crafting is not only fun, therapeutic and relaxing, it’s an awesome activity all ages can enjoy. And the best part? You’re left with a beautiful, hand-crafted memento reflecting your hard work, style and creativity!
Here at CraftJam, you can pick up a great new crafting skill to build on, come home with some fun hand-made creations to decorate your space with and definitely impress some friends in the process. Our passionate, dedicated team of artists, designers and makers has everything you need to get crafty!
From girls’ nights out and afternoon activities with the family to corporate events and holiday parties and office outings, CraftJam has you covered. Check out our amazing classes below, offered in our studio in SoHo as well as other venues around New York City, and find the JAM that’s right for you!
