creativity + community = wellness

We are passionate about making, helping, and healing. ​

It started out as an endeavor between friends, to share and build. Less than a year in, it's already evolving into something bigger and better. The Hive is us, and The Hive is you. We need each other and only exist with each other.


We'll do workshops for all sorts of ways of making-- from Soul Collage to bookmaking, to ceramics, leather, stained glass, printing,...

Come join us! We're here for the Making.

Thanks for your patience while we update our website!
