Purple Threads

Make-Modern is a studio for crafting and making in Darien, CT. We offer weekly classes and evening workshops for kids and adults. On weekends we throw crafting birthday parties. We're open for retail if you need a fun gift or a kit to craft at home.​ 

Come visit us in the studio!

CREATE SOMETHING QUITE BEAUTIFUL

With  the best quality materials and high design projects, all of our students 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.

Handy Policies & Practices:

Make-up classes: We do not offer make-ups or refunds  if you  miss a class due to limited availability of studio space and teacher schedules. 

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!

Weather & holiday cancellations: Please visit our website for announcements related to weather. We will also email students if there are any changes to our schedule.

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.
