Who We Are

Founded in 2018, Live, Love & Create is a social crafting business based in the Akron/Fairlawn area of Ohio offering classes for kids, adults and families to make personalized creations.

We offer public crafting workshops at various local wineries, breweries and other establishments several nights a week. See our home page for upcoming events. In addition, we have an after school Kids Craft Club program at some of the area schools.

We also partner with companies to bring creativity into the workplace through

brainstorming, teambuilding and event activities.

Live, Love & Create classes and sessions are a fun way to get together with friends, family or coworkers and create something special and useful. 

No crafting experience necessary and all materials are provided. Our goal is for you to go home with a project you are proud you made!

Don’t have the time or can’t make the class? Completed projects offered for sale. We also offer DIY kits for some projects so you can make them at home.

Also available to book for private parties, birthday parties and corporate events.
