Hi there!

Small Craft Advisory is a Kauai based learning initiative dedicated to sharing the love of making-things-by-hand through quality, expert-lead, intensive craft workshops. Established in 2017 by Shannon Hiramoto, owner of machinemachine apparel and co-proprietor of Workshop.

My grandmother taught me to sew 20 years ago and my fascination with sewing has never waned. I have earned a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Hawaii Manoa as well as a BA in English. I hope to spread the love of making things by hand via these Small Craft Advisory class sessions. --Shannon
