  • Abstract Stained Glass Workshop

    Justin runs a very informative class, with enough time to accommodate your creativity. I would definitely recommend him for stained glass, but he offers art classes across a multitude of mediums. Thank you
  • Your Pet in Stained Glass!

    Reviewed by Jaime K. on 4/15/2024
    Highly recommend this class! Everything from the classroom, to the instructors (shoutout to Chloe and Justin) to the class is amazing. You send in a photo of your pet and when you arrive, they have the glass cut for you and ready to assemble. The process was intimidating for me but Chloe was so knowledgeable and made me so comfortable with the process. It was so much fun and a wonderful way to pass a few hours on the weekend ending with a beloved piece of art to take home. I’ll definitely be coming back to try other classes! Don’t miss out!

Discover the Best Crafting Classes in Los Angeles

Crafting is a type of creative expression that involves using various materials and techniques to make something by hand. Some people do it as a hobby, others as a profession, and for some it is a form of art. Crafting can involve many different types of materials, such as fabric, paper, metal, and wood. It is used to make all sorts of items, ranging from jewelry, to shoes, to furniture. Some people use new materials for crafting, while others focus on repurposing and recycling old items.

Why You Should Learn Crafting in Los Angeles

Making something with your hands can be extremely satisfying, and this is one of the main reasons that many people get started in crafting. When you put your own time and effort into creating an item, the finished product is typically much more meaningful than anything you can buy in a store. It is also more unique. Crafting allows you to use your creativity and ingenuity, and create something that is truly one-of-a-kind.

Crafting can also be a therapeutic activity. People who craft often say that they forget about their worries when they are focused on a craft project. Not only that, but this activity can boost your mood and self-esteem, because you’re likely to feel a real sense of accomplishment when you look at your finished creation.

In-Person Crafting Classes in Los Angeles

If you live in the Los Angeles area, and you want to take a crafting class, you’ll find a wide variety of different types of in-person crafting classes there.

After taking this class, students should be ready to knit more complex items such as socks and garments. Tuition is $80, and there is an average class size of ten people. The Knitting Tree sells an extensive collection of yarns and handcrafted items, and also offers classes and project ideas.

Virtual Crafting Classes 

Online crafting classes are another great way to learn many different types of crafting. When you take a class online, you log in on your computer, and participate in a live session with an instructor and other students. This format became common during the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, but has remained popular because it allows students so much flexibility. If you learn online, you’ll probably have to supply your own materials, but you won’t have to spend time or money on a commute.

You can take a virtual class called Introduction to Weaving through the Chicago Botanic Garden. Tuition is $374, and there are eight class sessions. The instructor begins by teaching students how to make their own looms.
