Craftsman Ave, textiles, woodworking and metalwork teacher

Craftsman Ave

Craftsman Ave 5.0 (7)

We transform "regular folks" into welders, woodworkers, welders, jewelry makers, leather crafters, knife forgers, and stained glass artisans in just one workshop. Our hands-on workshops are taught by local makers, artists & designers in Brooklyn.
Locally owned and operated since 2015, Craftsman Ave is a destination to connect people who want to learn how to do new things with a skilled and likable craftsman who can show them how to do those things in a straight forward, fun, and non-condescending manner. You can make cool stuff while supporting the makers and artists of NYC who we hire to lead our workshops.

Leather Tote Bag Making Class

This class is so worth it. Will and Massimo were great instructors and extremely patient and kind. The variety colors and straps make it so you truly feel like your bag is one of a kind. I loved being able to craft with my mom and learn a new skill. The space is cozy and welcoming and overall an amazing atmosphere and class. Thank you

Stained Glass Art Class

Teacher was nice. Good amount of material to chose from. Small class size. Like that we can take the piece home same day.
