A former yarn-dying factory, Globe Dye Works has been transformed into a community of artists, designers, and fabricators. Tour the studios of Brian Giniewski and Stacey Lee Webber while also seeing brand new gallery and event spaces.
Short for “Made in Kensington” and comprised of nearly 300,000 square feet, MaKen Studios are two repurposed, industrial buildings in North Philadelphia that foster the development and sustainability of successful professional craftspeople, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and manufacturers.
Bahdeebahdu specializes in mixing contemporary art and design with a philosophy rooted in beauty, pleasure and humor. Mixed-media artist Warren Muller and designer RJ Thornburg have created a magical environment for viewing and collecting handmade works.
Crane Arts Building
Crane Arts has four floors of galleries and artist studios with The Old School across the street, which is home to Pig Iron Theatre and a bouquet of artist studios converted from former classrooms. InLiquid, Icebox Project Space and other galleries are located throughout the first floor.
