    A Very Crafty Tour of Boulder

    Admire the handiwork of Boulder’s artisans and find supplies for your own creations. 

    Morning

    Stop in to admire the graphic textiles at Fabricate or the glimmering strings of beads inside the artful Nomad Beads shop. Then stop by Art Mart and the Boulder Arts & Crafts Gallery to see goods for sale from some of Boulder’s top artisans — woodworkers, potters, jewelry makers, photographers and more.

    Afternoon 

    Take a class at Two Hands Paperie (shown below), a local stationery shop on the west end of Pearl Street that offers tons of courses, from bookmaking to rubber-stamp carving. At the other end of Pearl Street is Madelife, an organization that helps launch local artist entrepreneurs, with classes and a shop featuring finely crafted modern furniture, home goods and jewelry.

    Nearby, on East Pearl Street (between 17th and 21st streets), you'll find a collection of locally designed and made goods, including By Elke (handmade purses), Truman Boot Company (handmade footwear), Sherpani (bags designed in Boulder) and Todd Reed (fine jewelry design).

    Evening 

    Paint your own pottery at Color Me Mine; get working on your next masterpiece at Posh, a “paint and wine studio;” or make your own wooden sign at Board & Brush. Now it’s time for a handcrafted beer or cocktail. Try Avery Brewing Company for cold brews, Rayback Collective for locally brewed Rowdy Mermaid kombucha on tap, or Salt for crafty cocktails (you can even invent your own).
