Getting artsy at The Craft Central

Getting artsy at The Craft Central
In 2014, craft supplies and hand-made products were available online at

In 2016, it opened its first retail store in Greenbelt 5 and second store at The Block, SM North in 2017. Last May 17, 2018 saw the opening of the third store on the 2nd floor of The Ayala Malls Vertis North, Quezon City. This creative destination offering brushes, pads, inks and fan favorite starter kits continues to support 100+ talented local artists and makers.

This retail store offers more space for hobbyists and workshop-goers with comfort food and drinks available while working on their favorite crafts. The exclusive opening party on May 17, 2018 gave away from Serious Gentlemen, fan stickers from Diya Logo, decorated notepads, beautifully designed gift wrappers courtesy Ink Scribblers, custom keychains by Hodge Podge and stickers and enamel pins from Pointy Little Things.

They also served food from Chef Geremy Kho who created the food from scratch and are available everyday when you visit The Craft Central Cafe. 

Their coffee is supplied by Black Press PH. They had a buy one take one promo that day. I paid the highest amount which was Iced Mocha (Php 160) then got Latte for free. 


They also had a craft section where you can paint, create your own pom pom and personalize notebooks with stamps from Hammy Creates. I took the opportunity to release my creative juices that afternoon and used their cutout coloring sheets to paint on it. I forgot how fun it could be to get messy while doing artsy activities. I was inspired to try out calligraphy and watercolor painting.

I found the whole thing therapeutic. 😻

It is certainly the perfect place to find a new hobby or just replenish your art supplies and find an adorable collection of trinkets for gifts or personal use. I don't mind spending time in this shop and get lost with the cuteness of each item they sell.
