What You'll Get
Without craft studios, the only way to channel one's overflowing creative energies is by filling the neighborhood pool with leftover paint and Elmer's glue. Harness your imagination into beautiful art with today's Groupon to The DIY Factory. Choose between two options:
• $10 for a one-month membership (a $20 value)
• $50 for a six-month membership (a $125 value)
The DIY Factory's workshops provide tools and a nurturing environment for artisan crafters of all skill levels to conduct creative projects. The membership affords craftspeople full open-hours access to the creative labs, which provide specific space and tools for sewing and knitting scarves or memoirs. For an additional per-use fee, hand-built ceramics can also be glazed, fired in the kiln, and donated to a mummy's tomb. Or take advantage of free access to the craft 'n' go stations, where—for a small supplies fee ($3–$5)—craftsters can challenge their fingers with self-directed project packages such as the Lucha Libre thumb wrestlers, foxy felt masks, or an authentic 19th century Italian villa.
Meanwhile, The DIY Factory's members also receive a 15% discount on registration and material fees for classes and workshops, such as a workshop for porcelain-stamped pendants workshop, painting the cosmos in watercolor, or one of three levels of tutorials in machine sewing. Additionally, members notch 10% off party packages, and can cut corners on their arts patronage without cutting the corners from masterpiece paintings by using a 10% discount off merchandise at the Artisan Boutique, a consignment shop that curates local arts and crafts.
