The Crafty Hammer
The Hudson Valley’s #1 DIY Creative Studio
Welcome to The Crafty Hammer. We create DIY Happiness with our TRENDY DIY PROJECTS! This is the place to learn the techniques needed to create custom, classic, one-of-a-kind pieces of décor that not only look professional, but are worthy of hanging on your wall, sitting on your table or to give as an heirloom gift. We offer Scheduled Workshops, Walk-in Open Sessions as well as Private and Semi-Private Events.
Our studio is located in the center of Beacon, in Dutchess County, NY. We have a workshop, wood shop and lots of space in between to get your creative juices flowing. Whether you have only dreamed of making something with your hands or you are a home decorator extraordinaire, we will teach you to use hand tools, power tools and the know how to put together wood projects with feet and dowels, and add hardware to hang them up and display proudly! You will enjoy it so much you may even want to shop from our consignment tools to build your own toolbox!
We also teach specialty workshops and these sell out fast! Have you ever wanted to build your own dining room table? Adirondack type chairs for adults or children? What about your own table top or outdoor yard games? We will offer these a few times a month on a weeknight with limited seats, so make sure to like our Facebook or Instagram pages to get notice of these awesome workshops first!
Our Vision and Mission
At The Crafty Hammer, our goal is to turn every single participant into a MASTER DIY’er. We educate participants and build their skill level with each workshop so they understand the raw materials we use which allows our DIY’ers to make decisions about their unique qualities. They also learn to appreciate how knots in the wood, color variations and any imperfections can be used to enhance their project.
We believe in keeping our community green and healthy though use of water based environmentally friendly stains and paints throughout all of our workshops. We also practice the 3R’s and Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose basically everything!
We believe that Vocational Education and that working with your hands to build beautiful things is an important skill and can be obtained by anyone. We hope to teach our customers these skills (and more) so that they can use many different tools to create home décor products, as well as to fix their own items and not have to throw them out and replace.
Lastly, we hope to work closely with the Community at large, on projects such as The Beacon Fairy Walk, Beacon Spirit Day, The Beacon Annual BBQ and many others. If you know a non-profit in the Dutchess County Vicinity that would like to use our workshop space or tools, please let us know. We’d love to talk about how we can ‘give back’ or help others ‘give back’ to our community, including fundraisers too!
Coming November 2019
When you book a workshop, you will learn how to make AMAZING Home Decor pieces and to repeat the same steps on your own to keep on creating! We specialize in Farmhouse and Vintage graphics and also have many modern sayings as well as fun and friendly designs.

We offer fun, age appropriate children’s workshops including crafts, wood and yarn in the Toddler Room. Older children accompanied by an adult can sit in a family workshop or private party and create their own wood decor item.
Our workshops are a great way for your team to socialize, work together and learn new skills while having a fun time. The memories will last a lifetime!
