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. Beacon has a vibrant Main Street with side streets filled with unique shops, flavorful restaurants, wine bars, craft beer breweries, coffee shops and ART! Dia Museum is in Beacon near the train station, as well as many galleries, music venues and amazing murals throughout Beacon. The Beacon Free Loop bus has stops throughout the city and can be used throughout the day.
Whether you have only dreamed of making something artsy 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, dowels, hooks, tracks and add hardware to hang them up and display your piece of art proudly! You will enjoy it so much you may even want to become a VIP!
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 dining room table or outdoor yard games? We will offer these a few times a year, so make sure to like our Facebook or Instagram pages to get notice of these awesome workshops first!
