The Craft Room is a space in Basel where you can come and make things!
The Craft Room has two separate rooms: our creating room has a table and chairs which makes it a perfect space for paper craft, fimo and other crafts where a surface is needed. Our lounge room has comfy sofas and armchairs, which are great to sit in and crochet or knit the hours away. We have a selection of teas including Yorkshire tea. We also have a portafilter coffee machine which makes lovely cappuccinos using freshly ground beans.
At the Craft Room we offer project classes, where you can bring your own projects to work on and get help, and classes where we show you how to make a project or teach you a skill. We mainly focus on yarn crafts and sewing as well as paper crafts and polymer clay, however we do sometimes offer sessions that cover other crafts.
The Craft Room first opened its doors in November 2016.
You can keep in touch with us on our Facebook page.

Jo has been a craft-loving friend to the Craft room since the beginning of our journey, coming to most of our coffee mornings and getting to know us. This inspired her to set up her own business Get Crafty with Jo, and we are very happy to have Jo teaching her classes at the Craft Room as an independent teacher. Originally from the UK, Jo has lived in the Basel region for many years. Jo is a crocheter and a trained florist and she loves to experiment with different crafts as well as crafting with children.
