Host a birthday party? No 🙁
The good news is, we do have a couple of alternatives we can offer:
– We can host the party in your home. We bring all craft supplies and activities, and provide 2 staff members to set up, lead the party, and clean up.
– We can host the party at an alternate location of your choosing. Some places we have held birthday parties include neighborhood clubhouses and community centers such as the JCC.

Drop by for Playcraft or Drop In Craft Porjects? No 🙁
The good news is, once the Homestead market location opens, we will have extended hours for Playcraft.

Top 3 Questions We Get Asked: #2 Where is Bull City Craft Annex?

Confused about where we are now? You are not alone! It has been a confusing few months for Bull City Craft.

Bull City Craft Annex is in Golden Belt at 807 E Main St in Downtown Durham. When you turn off Main Street, it looks like this:

You can continue straight ahead and park in the front Visitors Parking Lot. Walk down the sidewalk to the right, passing by Moshi Moshi and entering the door to Building 3 on your left.

Or, you can park in the Main Lot in the back. The entrance to Building 3 from the parking lot in back looks like this:

Once you enter the building, look for studio 3-118. It is in the center on the corner of Room 100 Gallery. If the gallery is open, you can walk straight through and we are on the right. If the gallery is closed, you can circle around through the studio hallway.

When you see this, you will know you have arrived! We’re currently open on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1-5pm.

Top 3 Questions We Get Asked: #1 What Happened to Bull City Craft?

When we successfully funded our Kickstarter campaign back in June, we never could have imagined all the twists and turns that our journey to a new location has taken. We are infinitely stubborn and optimistic, and although there have been many setbacks, we are still determined to fulfill our dream of a reimagined Bull City Craft. Here’s a quick recap of the last few months.

June: Moved out of our University Drive location.
July: Found a space at Homestead Market that is the right size and has outdoor space, good parking, and a great coffee shop nearby 😉
August: Continued negotiations on the space at Homestead Market. Golden Belt approached us about opening an art supply outpost in the artist studios.
September: Opened our tiny shop at Golden Belt, Bull City Craft Annex. Signed a lease on the space at Homestead Market Shopping Center on Hwy 54.
October: Discovered that renovations at Homestead Market had been delayed and we would not receive the space until November.
November: During renovations, additional necessary repairs were discovered, causing further delays before we can move into the space at Homestead Market. In the meantime, we opened a Kids Pop Up Shop at the BCC Annex.

While our space at 105 W NC 54 is still under construction, we are making the most of our tiny shop, the Annex at Golden Belt, as well as events around town. Check out all our holiday events here.
