How Did We Start?
Opened in January of 2019,
SW Craft Connection is the passion of it's founder, Garianne Fuentes.
Like fellow artists & crafters, Garianne was discouraged crafting in miscellaneous places, due to issues like unfavorable safety and lighting.
The problem of a crafter was certain to meet a creative & crafty solution:
SW Craft Connection
Who Are We?
SW Craft Connection was founded in order to provide a
clean, well-lit, safe, spacious, open, and accessible studio,
dedicated to elevating the Artists and Crafters of the community.
Specializing in craft classes and workshops in all mediums of art,
SW Craft Connection is also available for reservation for
private parties or open-studio space.
We offer classes in a variety of craft specialties, such as
Paper-crafters, Fiber Arts, Mixed Media, Jewelry, Acrylics, Polymer Clay,
and so many more.
Where Are We?
You can find us in the Scottsdale Village Shopping Center
nestled next door to Annie’s Soup Kitchen!
Worried about finding parking?
Our parking lot provides ample well-lit spots so crafting into the evening is safe.
What to Expect
Our studio is designed so everyone is able to experience the joy of art!
We are handicapped accessible and can seat up to 30 students.
(Or, up to 40 students in a lecture setting)
The space is complete with an instructor’s work-space table
which includes a flat-screen TV enabled with casting abilities.
(Perfect for giving a live view of the instructor’s crafting surface!)
Our student area includes long craft tables equipped with power strips. (Perfect for any craft or art you have in mind!)
To ensure that our Artists and Crafters alike are properly fueled,
SW Craft Connection provides a coffee station
as well as other beverages, like tea, soda, and water.
In addition to beverages, classes & workshops will include
a variety of snacks provided by the instructor.
Along with its wonderful crafting studio,
