Handwork - The longest-lived cooperative store in Downtown Ithaca

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Downtown Ithaca Alliance

Point of Interest Details

Started in 1976 by 12 local craftspeople. Working together, they could afford the cost and time of opening a retail shop to sell their work. Handwork now has over 40 member artisans doing a range of work that includes pottery, woodworking, glass, jewelry, fiber arts, leather, and paper.

Utilizing a traditional co-op model, Handwork is staffed solely by its members, who also meet monthly to share information, make decisions, and jury new applicants.
