Open Studio and Store:
Fabrics, Arts & Crafts

Pop into our studio and make something! Polymer clay, wood, paper maché, fairy garden supplies, fabrics, canvases, beads, papers, and more are waiting to become anything from magnets, bookends, or one-of-a-kind art to organizers, locker items, desk accessories, and personalized, truly wonderful gifts! Buy what you need and take it home, or stay and use our studio and all its tools for a modest fee.


  • Start with a core project, such as a wooden birdhouse or wall letter, an acrylic wall pocket, blank stationery in Paper Source’s magical colors, some blocks of polymer clay, or a SMASH! journal/project book (and those are just some of the choices!)
  • Look around the studio at our paints, papers, fabrics, beads, stickers, embellishments, and tools to personalize it.  You might make clay moustaches and glue them onto paper clips for your SMASH! journal.  Maybe you’re just in the mood to paint? Grab a canvas, or a set of wood bookends, and paint to your heart’s content!
  • Our instructors can get you started with ideas, books and inspiration, and then you create your own, unique piece to take home!

Our Open Studio fee is $10 for 2 hours per creator. To drop off children ages 7-12, add $5 to the studio fee per child. Open Studio projects typically range from $8-$25 (but, on average, land around the $15 mark).

All of this is included in your studio fee
