About Assemble

Andie Powers and Emily Grosse teamed up in 2009 to create Assemble Gallery & Studio. Located in the Phinney Ridge area of Seattle, the Assemble physical space integrated a gallery, a workshop studio, and a retail shop to host creativity of all kinds. In January of 2013, we’ve made the decision to transfer the business to a completely online entity. We LOVE our space, community and events, but we are ready to try something new and exciting!


Assemble will continue tutorials in online video form and workshop kits which you can order from our website and do at home. Plus, we have new aspects of our business that we are looking forward to, including custom design for events, weddings, and parties! We are excited about this new venture and are looking at it as an opportunity for growth in a larger, online community.


Our mission is (and always will be) to honor craft as modern art, while teaching both traditional and avant-garde crafting techniques to a broader, internet audience. Assemble also offers an online shop full of hand-made and design-inspired gifts. We see Assemble-online as a gallery of inspiration and ideas: a place for people to assemble, make, and do.
