About Your Host

If you’re in the mood for DIY, looking to take up a new hobby, or just want an excuse to get out of your apartment and do something fun and stress-free, CraftJam is the place for you! Here at CraftJam, we have literally made it our business to provide real-world workshops where anyone can make and create cool DIY projects in an upbeat and social setting. We know first-hand how therapeutic jewelry making can be after a long work day, and how friendships blossom over yarn, wine and conversation. Not sure you’re the creative type? Don’t worry about it! Whether you join us on your own or bring a plus-one (or five), we invite people of all skill-levels to come create with us! This is a great opportunity to give your brain a break from city life and let your imagination run wild!
