What Is Social Craft Columbus?  

Welcome to Social Craft Columbus, AKA "The Social Craft - Handcrafted Happy  Hour." It's a fun, relaxing evening enjoying great conversation and cocktails while making handcrafted treasures ready to take home at the end of the night. Even if you aren't particularly crafty, my streamlined process will have you creating funky collectibles and accessories you'll be proud to display in your home or give as gifts.  No cheesy stuff here, I promise!  

I stage events at popular bars, restaurants and businesses throughout the Columbus area and provide all the materials, tools and know-how to help you bring out your inner artist.  Bring a group of friends or fly solo an make some new ones!  And remember:  the first round is always on me!  Cheers!

Who Is Social Craft Columbus?

Hi!  I'm Gretchen.  I'm one of those "creative types" always looking for cool stuff to make. I've loved crafting since I was a little girl cranking out hand-made creations with my five big sisters.  If you could make it, we did!  From macrame to crochet, from tole painting to decoupage, from cross stitch samplers to paper crafts, we tried it all.  And it was fun!

But nowadays I find DIYing can be more hassle than fun, especially if you are on your own! First, you have to find a project you like that you can actually accomplish, and when you have a house full of boys like me, this can be tricky!  You think you've blocked off enough time to finish, but life gets in the way and your project gets shoved aside (or someone spills chocolate milk on it).  Or you think you have all your materials ready to go, but you get halfway through and discover you need to make yet another trip to the craft or hardware store.  And craft supplies are expensive!  Sometimes you have to buy more than what you really need for one project, so you spend a lot more than you might expect.  It can really drain the fun out of crafting.  And having fun is kind of the point, right?

At "The Social Craft," I eliminate all those problems for you, so you can concentrate on letting your creativity flow.  I research and design crafting projects that can be done in a short time but look amazing.  I assemble and prepare all the materials for you and show you exactly what to do to make that one-of-a-kind piece you can be proud to say YOU created.  I provide a laid-back social atmosphere for you to do it in and I even buy your first drink to get the party started!  Together, WE are "The Social Craft."  

So come on out and have some fun with "The Social Craft."  Register for a Handcrafted Happy Hour near you, or contact me to schedule your own private party tailored to your group and tastes.
