The Studio

Made in PGH, Made by YOU

In keeping with Contemporary Craft’s mission “to engage the public in the creative experience through contemporary craft,” Studio offerings focus on metals, wood, fiber, mixed media and book/paper arts with workshops at every skill level from introductory to mastery. We are honored to have talented regional artists, as well as outstanding visiting artists teaching in The Studio. Our educational programming is planned for many different audiences including general visitors and their children, schools (both for students and teachers), at-risk youth, and residents of retirement facilities.  Contemporary Craft’s educational objectives are to involve the community in the appreciation and expression of art through craft media, to strengthen appreciation of the creative process as an important component in everyone’s life, and to assist visitors in integrating exhibition information outside the gallery.


We make it easy to show your clients, employees, friends, and family that you appreciate them in a genuine and creative way. Give the gift of a memorable making experience with a Studio Gift Certificate.
