"Try it Free" Art and Craft Studio
and Uplifting Bookshop
exactly is Creative Cocoon?...
Creative Cocoon is a bookshop and arts and crafts studio which does
just what its subtitle suggests. It truly is a place where "human
butterflies" (i.e.,- those of us who would like a little transformation
in our lives) can blossom and bloom! Just as the butterfly emerges
from its cocoon as a beautiful, colorful creature, so can we- if
we take the time to seek a little creativity and self-expression
in our lives.

Creative Cocoon is an arts and crafts studio in Indianapolis, Indiana

students of all ages have the opportunity, free of charge, to see
and try many different arts and crafts. They can also put together
a "creative bag." Being able to see and try out so many
different creative endeavors in one place, free of charge, is what
is truly unique and wonderful about Creative Cocoon!

This is a canvas bag which will contain materials, supplies, and
instruction books to help visitors or students pursue the arts and

to experience before in their lives. The supplies which will fill
the "creative bag" may be obtained at reasonable cost
at Creative Cocoon.

After that, students may receive affordable, weekly lessons in the arts or crafts of their choice (at $18.00 a lesson, with sliding scale available for those with special financial situations).
