COCKTAILS+CRAFT...

is a hands-on workshop where you will learn how to make an inspired craft while enjoying a cocktail. We are globally inspired with a hyper-local focus (glocal anyone?) and curate each workshop to be unique to the specific community. We travel often to meet artisans, mixologists, makers and creatives and bring back what we learn to create more enlightened workshops.

This is not your typical sip and paint, this is cocktails+craft.

You will get out of your comfort zone. You will create something entirely unique. You will make a new friend. You show up, we guide. You do the work, we support. You let loose, we say now make that cocktail again!

OUR STORY

How we started making and shaking...

Sisters Stephanie and Valerie started cocktails+craft in their living room in Washington, DC in 2015. Stephanie had been working on a fashion line and was spending all her time in the studio. Valerie was working on the Hill and wanted to spend time making things with her hands. They were both meeting interesting people in DC and started inviting them over to make an inspired cocktail and a craft. Soon they got requests to do workshops outside of their living room.

Now, cocktails+craft hosts a monthly workshop at Colony Club as well as private events. We have developed custom workshop series for folks like Smithsonian Folklife Festival and WeWork and have partnered with creatives, makers, and liquor brands in DC and beyond.

At cocktails+craft, our goal is to inspire creativity, build community and grow cultural understanding because we believe these initiatives will make the world a better place.

Creativity is inside of all of us, but it takes practice for it to shine. And it takes community for it to make a difference. Come craft with us!
