A Creative Community

The Resource Room is committed to providing a safe, inclusive and accessible space with limitless creative opportunities. Come alone or bring friends or the whole family to work on a variety of arts & crafts. Use the tools provided to make buttons, make vinyl decals, stamp your own jewelry, work on a sewing project, and much more! 

More Than Just a Craft Room

The Resource Room is the intersection of many things that matter to me. It is about creativity, and the joy that sharing a creative space with supportive others can bring. It’s about community. It’s about getting friends and  families off their phones and into the glitter. It’s about connecting people and building community. And last but most certainly not least, the resource room is about personal growth. It seeks to offer people a fun, safe place try new stuff and learn how to do new things! It’s also about making buttons. Did I mention that? Everyone loves buttons, right?

 

We love buttons!

A Note From The Owner:

I have a somewhat all-over-the-place history in preparation for this step toward my dream! I earned a Bachelor’s degree Gender Studies and Sociology and a Master’s in Higher Education Administration.  In 2015, I earned a Technical Certificate in Visual Communications. Professionally, I have experience in many areas of higher education and student affairs, including past roles in housing & residence life, new student orientation, and more. I’ve been teaching college success courses at various institutions since 2014, and enjoy organizing creative and inspiring workshops and other events. I’ve been an academic counselor since 2016, helping college students explore goals, majors, career interests, and strategies for college success. It seems many of my passions have converged here.

I’ve loved art, community building, and education for as long as I can remember, and The Resource Room is really the intersection, or maybe culmination, of all of the things I’ve dreamed of doing. It’s my dream craft room and more! I hope you’ll check it out, and I’m always happy to hear suggestions!
