we are a unique harlem artists’ collective who make one-of-a-kind/small batch handcrafted works of functional beauty.

our wares are available at seasonal festivals at st. mary’s church, throughout harlem, and, hopefully soon, at our favorite harlem retailers!


Our next event will be on Saturday, June 24 from 11 am to 4 pm at the Shop Harlem Life Harlem Lifestyle Expo. The Expo will be at the Harlem Mist, 46 W 116th St, New York, NY 10026, between Fifth Avenue and Malcolm X Blvd (6th Ave).

In addition to the members of the Makers’ Guild @ St. Mary’s Harlem, the Expo will feature many other local Harlem chefs, entrepreneurs and artists. Come and meet some of many talented and successful professionals in our community!
