Handmade & DIY

I

In an age of pre-fabricated mini-malls mimicking the real-life town centers of the last century, Alexandria offers something different: authenticity. Nowhere is this more evident than in the city’s thriving artisan-focused galleries and shops.

What began as an offshoot to the city’s vibrant arts scene epitomized by the world-renowned Torpedo Factory Art Center is now a great collection of merchants offering one-of-a-kind handcrafted products and supplies. Makers spaces include the wildly popular fibre space, a full-service knit and crochet community.
