We have something for everyone! Brooklyn Metal Works is a fully equipped metalsmithing studio run by professional metalsmiths and jewelers. We provide all the tools and equipment you need so that you can invest your energy into making work.
Our semi-private studios allow for 24 hour keyed access to the entire studio. You can also solder at your bench if you choose, and we will provide the ventilation. These spaces are along a windowed wall for plenty of natural light.

For various reasons, notably the late-arrival of the all-essential bar, I've not had a chance to photograph everyones' work, so I will be posting later next week with updates of photographs… Continue

I was asked for a recommendation for on-demand printing of catalogs. I have never done this myself, so I thought I would ask the crafthaus community:
Who is your favorite on-demand catalog printer and why? Could you please tell me your experiences (either good or bad) and talk about quality and prices ?
