Our shop is located in the Hazelwood Neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. At the moment our warehouse space has minimal signage and we are set back from the main road a bit. We are located at 5434 Herbert Way just off Second Avenue next to Cribs for Kids.
Our shop hours are dependent on the current programming we have going on in the space. In the summer we are open during camp days: Tuesday - Thursday from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm and in the spring and fall our hours shift to match our after school program schedule: Tuesday - Thursday from 12:00pm - 7:00 pm. It is always a good idea to call or email first to see if anyone will be at the shop.
We typically invite students who are 14 to 18 years of age to be part of our programs. That said, if you have a 12 or 13 year old who is mature for their age and interested - please reach out to us at to discuss their possible participation.
We have offered some classes for adults in the past and hope to offer more in the future. As a fairly new organization, we are still building our capacity to meet demand. If you have a group of folks interested in taking an intro class please reach out to us at and sign up on our mailing list to stay up to date on current offerings.
We are always looking for organizations to work with on sculpture projects but the nature of the beast is that student lead sculpture projects take a long time to create. If you are interested in commissioning a work please reach out to us at
