When you hear the phrase “craft bar,” you probably imagine a bar that sells craft beer, right? Well, NuLu’s newest craft bar, The Craftery, comes complete with a bar... but it’s a different kind of “craft” than the one you might have in mind. Whether you dream of DIY or you’re a seasoned do-it-yourselfer, The Craftery is the perfect haven for any artistic hobby. “We've created a space where you can connect with your community and your creativity, regardless of skill level or your artistic talent,” says Craftery owner Tara O’Brien. “We want you to relax, have fun, and feel proud to make something with your own two hands, no prep or clean up required!”
The Craftery offers a wide range of DIY craft experiences including woodworking, jewelry making, concrete projects, leather work, and more. Once you make your reservation, all that’s left to do is show up, work on your project, and have fun! “You will leave with a super cute, handmade, customized project that you'll be so excited to hang on your walls, give as a gift, or use it in your everyday life!” Tara says. “You'll be able to come back again and again, having a unique and novel experience, each time.”
At The Craftery, you get to craft your own adventure...but you don’t have to do it all by yourself. For those who are new to DIY or just haven’t flexed their creative muscles in a while, the environment at The Craftery is the perfect place to start your artistic journey. “Our craft guides are here to help you with any steps or questions along the way, get the creative juices flowing with your beverage of choice, and be your personal cheerleader— you've got this!” says Tara.
The Craftery is brand new to NuLu, but it’s already the perfect fit for the neighborhood. “I love all of our neighbors, the creative energy, and inclusive environment!” Tara says. “We haven't opened yet, but I am hoping customers will keep coming back for our fun, relaxing environment, our helpful and supportive craft guides, and our new projects, events, and opportunities to explore new crafts and enjoy the feeling of connecting with their creative side.”
If you’d rather stay home for some solo-crafting or you’d like to host your own crafting house-party, The Craftery also offers craft kits to-go. “We offer free shipping for all of our take-home craft kits that you can order and customize in our online shop,” Tara says. “We offer 6 different crafts at this time, with plans to add more!” The at-home craft kits include your supplies, step-by-step instructions, and access to online videos (in case you need some extra support). Plus, every order includes a coupon for 15% off one craft project when you visit The Craftery!
So the next time you’re feeling a little crafty or want to hand-make an extra special present for your BFF, head over to The Craftery and see what they have “on tap!”
