Experience History by Using Machines of the Past

Handcrafted is a makerspace and workshop designed to experience pre-electric technologies for collaboration and learning.  This immersive space will let you roll up your sleeves and use vintage tools – from a Kelsey letterpress to a treadle sewing machine, and a pedal scroll saw to a pastry cutter.

Here’s how KJZZ described us in a March 2017 inteview: KJZZ’s The Show: Crafting Like It’s 1899

Handcrafted is made up of five zones – Ink, Junk, Fiber, Food & Wood.  Each of those zones has antique and vintage tools that can be used to design and create.  Workshops are held each month, with specialists in these areas helping visitors learn about these techniques and tools in greater detail.
