Like the swirl of a fingerprint, Swirl Works is a one-of-a-kind artisan studio and workshop in the heart of Menlo Park.

Upcoming Workshops

Swirl Works is a creative escape at Allied Arts in Menlo Park, California. We offer workshops led by master artisans in a beautiful garden courtyard. Venture out and try something new. Lose yourself in the process of creating. Get connected and rediscover that feeling of endless possibilities.


It's time to get out and breathe again.


(We are located in Allied Arts in the back courtyard near The Barn)

In addition to Swirl Works, within Allied Arts you’ll find:

Onsite cafe | 12+ Boutiques + Studios | Idyllic Gardens

Studio Policies

Covid Protocols

We are following all guidelines provided to us from the CDC as well as San Mateo County. Every workshop is outdoors in our open-air courtyard. All surfaces are disinfected between sessions. Each participant will have their own set of materials and will be the only person utilizing that space. Masks are required and social distancing will be practiced.  

Arriving Late

Arriving a little late? No problem! All we ask is you let us know. Email us at [email protected] for any reason at all.


All purchases are nonrefundable. Should we incur inclement weather and need to cancel all activities, we will email you no less than 90 minutes prior to your workshop. Your purchase will be refunded back to the original form of payment.  


Please email us at [email protected] with any questions or concerns you may have.

This is a safe space for all, where all are welcomed. Just as masks are required for all workshops, so is respect and kindness towards all peoples. Derogatory or inappropriate comments are not welcomed or tolerated here.
