Looking for something fun to do in Seattle by yourself or with a friend? Try your hand at a new craft at The Works Seattle in Pioneer Square. The Works is a woman-owned small business in Seattle that offers a wide range of hands-on classes and take-home DIY kits.
Read on for all the details!
The Works Seattle was started in 2018 by Kellie Phelan. According to their About page, “we call ourselves The Works because we do a little of everything, from cooking to gardening to creative crafts.”
Every month you can check out the class calendar and sign up for whatever piques your interest. Here are some of the crafts you can learn in classes coming up on their calendar for March 2023:
- Screen printing
- Punch needle
- Moss wall art
- Crocheted purse
- Beeswax candles
- Rope baskets
Class prices typically range from $60 to $95 and can be anywhere from 90 minutes to three hours long. The best part is that after the class is over you get to take home whatever it is that you made—as well as your new crafting knowledge! Plus it can be a great way to meet new people in Seattle.
If you’re not able to make it to an in-person class, you can take home one of their DIY kits! They have everything from bubble tea kits to friendship bracelet kits. Most of the kits can easily be enjoyed with a buddy. Prices range from $29 to $65. Each kit comes with detailed instructions and you can see what (if anything) you’ll need to already have at home before you buy.
You can see all the DIY kits available on their website.
They also offer gift cards and can host in-person private events for groups of up to 20 people.
