An Echo Park school for the lovers of crafts and small spaces

Most schools like to boast about small classroom sizes.  In the case of The Classroom LA, a new Echo Park space offering lessons in sewing,  jewelry making and other crafts, small classes are the only way to go, with the center’s Sunset Boulevard building no bigger than a one-car garage. Here, at the base of a steep hill covered with tiny bungalow apartments, The Classroom’s black and pink colored hut  has only seven work stations for students, said co-owner Kelsey Wintringham. The once former law office had been used as storage for several years when Wintringham and co-owner Justin Warwick took it over and cleaned it up after years of neglect. “It took a lot of cleaning, repainting and redoing,” Wintringham said of the space, which opened last month.

In order to accommodate larger groups, The Classroom LA has teamed up with  The Warehouse, a nearby apparel and home accessories store owned by Warwick. Wintringham and Warwick have big plans for their small space:

We also collaborate with independent teachers in the area to offer a broader class catalogue.  This month we are collaborating with a local astrology instructor, and next month we have a calligraphy course in the works!
