Craftonomics – The Science of Crafts

Business Overview


Craftonomics provides crafting workshops and sewing classes to school age children. We are here to let every child use their creativity and learn important life skills in a fun way. We let them experience the sense of accomplishment and confidence building effect that comes from participating in crafting activities. Every class and project is designed according to that particular group’s age and skill level. In addition to building up the children, Craftonomics also works to spread awareness about the environment while encouraging everyone to use their creativity to share gifts in a more meaningful way. It is important to realize that we have the power to reuse items and make unique handmade crafts that decrease consumption.


At Craftonomics, children are taught a skill that will serve as a strong base to develop other skills that help them to do well in other fields of education like math, science and technology. They will discover their inner potential to learn a skill that would make them more independent. Our value is to recognize and award crafty families, including their creative children while giving back to communities.  We believe that every child can enjoy crafting as a part of a family outing or bonding experience. We are a great option for everyone who does not already have a home economics education, and who are interested in picking up domestic skills and hobbies, such as sewing, crafting, cooking, financial management, and healthy living.


Craftonomics prepares children for a better life by giving them the skills and confidence they need to embrace their creativity and tackle any challenges throughout their life. Craftonomics will build a fundamental base for those skills and knowledge at school, along with developing self-learning skills that makes them result-oriented and help easily learn new skills that might be needed in every aspect of life. Advantages that make Craftonomics unique are that our programs are designed to improve their communication, team work and leadership skills. Craftonomics aims to be that essential link to help kids to transition as a skillful, self-confident and responsible adult.


Company Vision and Mission Statement

Craftonomics will build a fundamental base for those skills and knowledge at school, along with developing a self-learning skill that makes them result-oriented and help easily learn new skills that will be needed throughout their lives.

Company Profile

Craftonomics exists to fill a gap that parents, teachers, school curriculum, and after school programs have no time, money, or knowledge to promote creativity during the most important stages of our lives.  We have been taught that creativity is a special gift that belongs to the few, and that is judged by comparison. All children have little artists in them, but they are not encouraged to uncover their talent. Children can come up with so much creativity if given an inspiring guidance. Craftonomics’ age and skill oriented programs help to discover kids’ talents and teach them essential life skills that will serve as a strong base for developing important skills and foundation for their successful future.


Craftonomics offers special sewing and crafting classes to older kids to help them increase their employability while preparing them for a job market. Workshops such as Make a Wear help everyone in the class to address their daily needs such as clothing and healthy eating. Our main goal is to teach them how to learn any new skills and “go fish” (from the saying “give someone a fish and it will last a day, but teach them to fish and they will eat everyday”). Craftonomics believes that everyone deserves to have an opportunity to try a life skill, discover their potential, and confidently rely on themselves at times when there might be a need to re-use, re-purpose or up-cycle existing resources.  We believe we can teach these skills from young age, especially when they are so eager to learn and discover limitless possibilities crafting offers.
