MAKE - MODERN
Make-Modern is a studio for crafting and making in Darien, CT. We offer weekly summer classes, evening workshops, crafting parties and venue rental. We're open for retail if you need a fun birthday gift or a kit to craft at home.
Weekly summer classes run from 6/22-8/21, you can sign up now! Evening workshops for kids and adults will begin in July.
WHO WE ARE
CREATE SOMETHING QUITE BEAUTIFUL
With the best quality materials and high design projects, all of our crafters create something beautiful. You may recognize the influence of German Waldorf School; some see reflections of Jess Brown and other textile artists. Students use the natural materials we collect from around the world: wools from England, knits from Scotland, yarns from Japan, trims from India, and dyes from Morocco.
And, yes, we have a little pig. Mr. Squiggles is almost always in residence, wagging his tail in hopes of a pet or a Cheerio.
Handy Policies & Practices:
Make-up classes: We're happy to help you make up a class that you have missed, but we do not offer refunds.
Photo release: Enrollment in a class serves as a release for your child’s photo or photo of their handwork to be published on Facebook and/or Instagram. Rather not? Just tell us!
Assumption of risk: When you sign up, you assume the risks associated with the class. Happily, we are not in a real risky business! Pointy needles are pretty much it.
