Studio Mooi: Arts & Crafts Workshops Connecting Creativity and Community in Toronto

Updated: Jul 3, 2023

In a world bustling with constant change and movement, finding a space to connect, create, and foster meaningful relationships becomes a cherished longing. Tanya, the owner and founder of Studio Mooi, embarked on a journey to manifest her dream of establishing a haven for the community to come together, share their passions, and find solace in the creative process.

A Journey Unfolding:

After years of traveling the world, following her husband's career and witnessing her children grow, Tanya yearned for a place where she could connect with other people who shared her desire for creativity and companionship. It was upon returning to Toronto that Tanya decided to turn her long-held dream into reality. Thus, Studio Mooi was born, serving as a testament to her unwavering determination and passion: a special studio in Toronto for arts and crafts workshops.

Where Beauty Meets Community:

The name "Mooi" was carefully chosen, reflecting Tanya's love for her adopted home, Amsterdam. In Dutch, "mooi" means beautiful, delightful and lovely, encapsulating the essence of the studio. At Studio Mooi, individuals are encouraged to embrace their artistic instincts, surrounded by a community of fellow creatives and curious explorers. It is a place where beauty is not only found in the finished creations but also in the connections and friendships formed along the way.

Unleashing Your Creative Spirit:

Studio Mooi offers a diverse range of artistic endeavors, each led by passionate and skilled artists who are eager to share their expertise. Whether it's the art of soap making, crochet, resin art, embroidery, watercolor painting, or other captivating crafts, there's something for everyone to explore. These guided sessions allow participants to tap into their creative potential, learn new techniques, and express themselves in unique and imaginative ways.

Embracing Women Empowerment:

As a women-owned and women-run arts and crafts studio, Studio Mooi stands as a beacon of empowerment. Tanya's vision was to create a nurturing environment where anyone, but especially women, could find support, inspiration, and a sense of belonging. By fostering a space where everyone can share their talents, skills, and stories, Studio Mooi encourages personal growth and celebrates the strength that comes from creative collaboration.
