“Being in a messy room led to something that firms, industries, and societies want more of: creativity,” says psychological scientist Kathleen Vohs. At CRAFT, we strive for an environment that encourages divergent thinking without being overwhelming. Our creative clutter is contained on shelves — and offset by 20 foot ceilings, white walls, big windows and bright lights, green plants, and open space. As a coworker, you’ll have access to our craft supplies, so that when you get stuck on a problem or hit writer’s block, you’ll be able to play your way out of it.
At CRAFT, we don’t ask why. We ask, why not?
CRAFT offers the coworking classics — good wifi, power outlets, coffee — and something that no other Austin facility provides: paint. And encyclopedias for cutting up and collaging, clay for forming into that shape that you can’t yet put in words, glitter to run your fingers through, paper for making cards to send to your clients, beads to take your mind off that code, and more.

A monthly coworking membership at CRAFT is $60, on a month-to-month basis. We invite you to spend a day with us to decide if we’re a good fit.
CRAFT is a unique facility and venue. We occasionally do rentals that require us to close. We reserve the right to close the studio up to six business days per month. Coworkers have access to the internal calendar of happenings at CRAFT.
At 2 pm, every day except Tuesday, we open to the public for walk-in crafting and calendared events. We cannot guarantee what our crowd will look like. One day the studio may be silent except for our upbeat world music, and another day we might have a raucous crowd on a reunion trip. We will do our best to inform you of upcoming events, but as a retail business, there’s a lot we can’t predict.
