Classes and events happening every day at Harmony Arts Cafe


Creativity and Art in Brattleboro

Make your reservations for special group events and crafting parties! These are great to help kids learn art, as a bonding exercise for your work group or employees, or just to have fun with visitors from out of town! Contact Paula Lavender to make arrangements – you’ll be happy you did!

Bringing kids in for arts and crafts lessons is a great way to tear them away from their phones, and give them skills that will last a lifetime.

At Harmony Arts Cafe, you can make full use of our specialized equipment,  including a long arm quilting machine, our full dye studio, and more. You can also rent use of our quilting machine, or take lessons on how to use it!

Come in to our accessible art studio to make quilts, pillows, totes, duct tape wallets, tie-dy felted soaps, and much more! We also offer sewing lessons, and a chance to make homemade gifts your friends or family will love for any occasion or holiday!

Our co-operative group projects provides you an opportunity to create crafts with others, which are then donated to people in need around our community.

Our Sunday Brunch gives you a chance to enjoy a buffet of art supplies and have fun making crafts. Suggested donation is only $7 per person, or bring the whole family for just $25!

Harmony Arts Cafe is also open for special after-hours evening classes and events, private parties, or for any occasion you can imagine. Simply contact us to make reservations.
