Located in East Austin, this eclectic, versatile space operates as an adult crafting studio by day and uniquely gorgeous venue space by night. Ample parking on site. We have tables and chairs for 45 guests and can rent additional furniture as needed by clients. As you can see in the sample floor plans, our furniture can be easily rearranged to create large square tables, long banquet tables, or no tables at all if you prefer theater style seating. Natural lighting and open space keeps people awake, and we can provide crayons and other tools for productive doodling (http://www.inc.com/peter-gasca/3-reasons-doodling-will-help-your-focus-and-creativity.html) or simple pens and paper. We are happy to work with you to arrange catering, coffee, etc. Our projector works well in daylight, and we have a sound system that you can plug right into with a 3.5mm jack. For on-the-spot brainstorming, we have white boards and sticky notes. Artistic succulents hanging from the ceiling. Amazing Austin art sculptures outside. This space is sure to wow for any occasion. We would love to be your turnkey event host and work with you to ensure a special and successful event. Available for SXSW, meetings, parties, and more. "I cannot recommend CRAFT enough, especially for corporate outings because it really does bring out the creativity in everyone and it's a perfect multi-purpose space for groups." -Alli H., on Yelp "Spending an afternoon out of the office and immersing ourselves in a creative way allowed us to bond and create community in a way that we hadn't before." -Liz C., on Yelp

CRAFT was an easy and beautiful space for our meeting. We had just under 50 people and Eli, the owner, provided coffee and filtered water - we brought in breakfast tacos and juice. She handled set up and clean up. Very fair price, plenty of parking during our time which was 8am to 10am. Plan to have our meetings there many times throughout this year.
The venue was immaculate, the lighting worked so well as the evening came about, and the building was very temperate. The layout was perfect for everyone to converse and have space as necessary. Eli was nothing but helpful throughout the process of setting our event and even helped produce a wonderful watercoloring activity for our guests! She is great, and I would recommend her and Craft for anyone looking for an incredible event space.
Eli is fantastic. Period. She was really flexible when we had to change the date last minute. She helped us set up our lunch service, made sure the team was comfortable in their seats during the meeting, and brought a fun-loving energy to our crafting time that made everyone feel so much more comfortable. She offered to donate our leftovers to the homeless for us and delivered our crafts to the office so the paint could dry. If you haven't booked this space yet, you must! I would absolutely do it again.
Craft was the most coolest place we have ever held an event from the spacious front and back to the eclectic feel on the inside . The host Eli and a few other associates were AMAZING! She made sure throughout the whole event and even months before we were well taken care of. We were really blessed to have come across Eli while looking for a place to host our SXSW UO showcase, she really took care of us. Her spirit is everything. M.A.N SXSW Showcases was EPIC and def went down as an unforgettable night. We plan on doing so much more with Eli at CRAFT in the future. Thank You Eli. LOVE YOU from your family PEACE POETRY PAINT 💕
This space is AMAZING! We used it for a brainstorming session and it was perfect. From the moment you walk in, the place just frees your mind and opens up your creativity. Eli was an amazing host and made us feel completely at home. We generated a ton of great ideas, and are grateful for such a marvelous space to create in.
Eli is the sweetest and most generous person. She was extremely welcoming and helpful. She wanted us to have the best party ever and she was constantly going above and beyond to make that happen for us. The space was great! It was open, spacious, and creative! Eli even set up an art project for our guests. I highly recommend this space. Eli is a great host and a is extremely accommodating.
