The Studio at Artisanthropy

Artisanthropy offers a warm and creatively stimulating environment in which to craft and make. With bright colours on the walls, inspiring artwork by local artists (also available for sale), and great lighting through a combination of overhead lamps, and table drafting lamps, the space is conducive to those looking for somewhere relaxing and spacious to create.

Open Studio

Open Studio time in our co-crafting space is now available! At a rate of $4 / hour (+tax), you may come in and craft all day to your heart’s content. We have a large cutting mat, lots of table space, great fabric shears, free wifi, and dress forms available for use. The best part is, the more people who come and create in the space, the more we can share our skills with one another. Our great staff will also be able to take care of questions you may have around the various crafts you’re making. You’ll learn their schedules and be able to book time based on when they’ll be in so you can get the help or advice you need with your various projects.

For an additional $4 / hour (+tax) you will be able to rent time at any one of our knitting, sewing or serger machines during Open Studio time. You must know how to use any of the machines you are going to rent, as, for the time being, we cannot guarantee our staff will have the knowledge necessary to guide you if it’s your first time at one of these machines.
