What Being A part of our Team Means
The Handwork Studio has been both a workplace and a family to me for almost a decade. Since summer 2012, I have been with the company and have matriculated from specialty camp counselor to lead counselor providing art tools and education to campers. I highly recommend working and being a part of THS family if you are looking for a place to grow, learn, and enjoy your summer with young, creative minds. Chiquanna "Chi-Chi", M.Ed.Psy. D. in Clinical Psychology '23, Site Director
"I really enjoyed the supportive work environment, and I particularly appreciated all the constructive feedback and positive reinforcement. The evolving dynamics with covid combined with in-person camp provided some challenges, but The Handwork Studio provided strong leadership and direction that I found very helpful. Having the opportunity to work with The Handwork Studio helped solidify my desire to become an elementary school teacher. I was excited to see how an engaging curriculum can bring out interests in children leading them to more investigation." Sophie, Assistant Instructor
When I worked with the Handwork Studio I could not have asked for a more joyous work experience! Not only did I get to cultivate the creativity of the kids at camp, I felt incredibly supported & inspired by the whole Handwork staff to explore my own creativity as an artist & instructor. I would do it all again fifty times over!" TJ, Lead Instructor
