Our Story

Our purpose is to provide an exceptional experience of exploration, education, and encouragement to our community.

The Handwork Studio was born of one mother’s desire to provide nurturing, creativity, and pride to her children through handmade creations. As a leading provider of needle arts education, we pride ourselves on being a creative and educational outlet for families.

Narberth, PA


The Handwork Studio's story began with our founder, Laura Kelly, and her search for a preschool. What she found was a place where teachers lovingly guided and nurtured creativity in their students. This sparked a love of creative learning that made Laura Kelly decide to continue her children's creative activities beyond school. Kelly hired a teacher and invited the neighborhood kids to join, and her business was born. The Handwork Studio has since grown to a year-round studio in Narberth with 40 summer camps in 10 different states. We are a group of passionate, nurturing, empathetic teachers with integrity that continuously work toward self-improvement, who strive to foster a creative exploration and self-confidence in our students that will last a lifetime.
