Our Studios

SBAP is a place where clay, sewing and fashion design meets community. We are an open studio for creative and wanna-be creative kids, teens and adults in St. Louis. We are inspired by people like you who know there's more to life than homework, meetings, budgets and deadlines. Choose South Broadway Art Project as your next creative destination to take your MaKing to the next level!

Making with a mission

Lunch hour. After work. After dinner. Bring your mom, kids, friends, co-workers... At SBAP we are committed to improving the lives of Saint Louis kids, teens, adults, residents, visitors and volunteers of different neighborhoods, different jobs, identities and backgrounds. We provide affordable and free opportunities in pottery, ceramics, textile and sewing classes. By doing this we believe we can change lives and our community through art!

Our Creative Team

We love creatives who believe in making things by hand and don't mind getting messy or dirty. You need a place to get away from it all. Start an Etsy shop. Make your own mug or dinnerware set, or work on your portfolio. Even if you have never touched clay or a sewing machine before you can find your path here. All of our staff and instructors are highly skilled, experienced and qualified to help you on your MaK-ing journey...

Be Creative. Work with your hands.
