The Chicago Rebel Craft League is a meetup group organized to inspire women who love arts and crafts of all kinds and have different interests and passions to get together to create, share, talk and learn about art...

If you'd like to get together to make unique art, acquire some new techniques, get inspired, and learn from others with a DIY aesthetic, then this group is for you! We will have open studio time where you can just come, hang out, create and have fun, and more specific classes where we will learn new art forms together.

Ideally, you'll be interested in crafts & projects that are both fun to make and have a design-oriented focus. We will find projects and tackle them together from the ground up. We will also make excursions to craft fairs, markets, and other fun stuff happening in the Chicago area.

The Chicago Rebel Craft League has been organized for local crafters and artists to be able to come together and learn new techniques with exciting workshops in areas of bookbinding, printmaking, jewelry making, sewing, supplies swaps, finished craft swaps, ATC's (Artist's Trading Cards), altered art, postcards, mixed-media, painting, card making, metal work, collage, altered books, hand-made jewelry, ceramics, bookmaking, etc.

Are you a collage junkie who wants to learn screen printing or a jewelry maker who wants to learn ceramics? Meet other local creative women to learn (and actually complete) a super cool art project with us!

Our group is open to artists and craftspeople at all experience levels.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
