What You'll Get


Learning a new craft creates a sense of accomplishment, which increases self-confidence and makes you want to run for mayor. For $35, today's Groupon gets you $75 worth of craft workshops at Hands-on 3rd, located on West 3rd near the Beverly Center.

Hands-on 3rd is a craft studio offering a variety of workshops, as well as private and semi-private lessons, where nearby animals are allowed to watch through the windows. The craftery's back-to-basics classes can be taken by beginners and master artists alike. During a three-hour open sew ($15), you can bring in a project and use the studio's sewing machines while fraternizing with fellow sewspeople. Invest in two months of knit assist ($15 per weekly session) to create a Christmas sweater or a Memorial Day set of socks. Crash courses of 150 minutes ($49) are highlighted on the online schedule in green and can help you learn to crochet, build a terrarium, or master machine-stitching techniques to make your own zipper coin-purse for Pog collections. Newer classes coming soon this season include Power Tools 101, Coffee-Stirrer Lamps, and Kinetic Creations, in which you'll give life to inanimate bendable wiring. As insinuated by the name of the business, Hands-on features an approach to crafting that involves hands and sends you home with actual skills in your hands.

  • …easy handbag or apron classes provide project right-away gratification. a free tea bar, tiny reference library, community announcement board, and casual workspace makes you feel right at home. – juli b
  • Not only is this place cozy, warm and friendly, but the crash courses are really such a fabulous idea, I think they might be my newest addiction. – Sheridan S., Yelp

About Hands-on 3rd


Student-created artwork lines the white walls of Hands-on 3rd's two studio spaces, the second of which belongs to partner company Art Works. The organizations share talented instructors, filling up the schedule at each location with drawing, painting, and sculpting classes from Art Works and yarn-work and sewing classes from Hands-on 3rd's staff. Whether a project requires a fresh stick of charcoal or a darning needle, an ample inventory arms students with the supplies needed to finish their projects, such as sketching a mustache on a dozing deskmate.
