The Craft Shop is your source for all things crafty. We offer classes, workshops, volunteer or community service activities, and private lessons in music, ceramics, fibers, painting, framing, woodworking, greek items, and much, much more. We carry a variety of crafting tools and supplies for students, classes, instructors, hobbyists, and/or anyone interested in making something. The Craft Shop is also home to Saluki Spokes, a bike repair shop with basic materials and tools available for check out.


In response to Covid-19 the Student Center eateries, including The Marketplace Food Court, Subway, and Starbucks are closed. Bowling & Billiards, eSports, and the Craft Shop are also closed until further notice. All event gatherings of 10+ people are canceled effective immediately and continuing at least through May 9. The University Bookstore and the ID Office will still remain open. This decision is to further the goal of social distancing and measures to keep our campus community and our Southern Illinois community safe.


The Craft Shop is located next to the Big Muddy Room at the south end of the Student Center on the Lower Level. The facilities and workshops are open to SIU students, faculty, staff and members of the community.

The Craft Shop is handicap accessible. For elevator entry, take the passenger elevator located at the cross halls near the University Bookstore on the first floor to the basement (B) level, go through the lounge and past the International Student Council office, then through the hall past the Story of Little Egypt display. If you need help finding us, don’t hesitate to call!
