About Craft Theory

Craft Theory is a local Lakewood, WA creative community studio where people of all abilities can come together and create. The studio is a three-part business showcasing local artists and makers. With a retail section, all types of creative classes, and event space available, Craft Theory is the perfect place for budding artists and those who want to support them.

Craft Theory was originally started by Meredith Russell after she discovered fluid painting in 2018. While she’s always felt creative, she didn’t excel in traditional arts so she felt like she didn’t belong in the art world. Fluid painting opened the door to more abstract arts and a rabbit hole of experimentation. She has a passion for supporting local artists and makers, and for giving the next generation the chance to create without expectations. 

The creative community studio at Craft Theory is the culmination of so many dreams, and we can’t wait to welcome you in. 

Pay: $16-18/hour DOE
