The Handwork Studio

About The Handwork Studio

The Handwork Studio is a nationally recognized organization that centers on handwork education. A blend of a traditional summer camp and experiential learning, our programs help kids develop new skills, discover their capabilities, and embrace the power of innovation in a nurturing environment. We strive to be an inclusive and diverse community committed to creating a holistic environment where all campers and staff feel included, respected, and celebrated.

The Handwork is located in 7 locations throughout DC, PA. MD, and VA where kids ages 5-16 learn hands-on skills like robotics, machine sewing, fiber arts, fashion design, woodworking, architecture, and more. Throughout our unforgettable summers, we encourage campers to develop an internal sense of pride by being kind to themselves, learning and growing from their mistakes, and fearlessly exploring their ideas.
