Hatch Hatch new skills. Hatch your creativity. Hatch something beautiful.
(6)

I am Maritza Maxwell and I founded Hatch in 2012. I have a degree in Fine Arts and Art History from Amherst College and a master's degree in Art History from Bryn Mawr College. I watch my children rejoice in making crafts, but I wonder, as they start school, how soon arts and crafts will become unnecessary to them. Once they have a full language and science curriculum, and then sports and other extra-curricular activities after school, the art world fades further and further away. Many people lose their ability to create, forget how to imagine, and then as adults, have a difficult time when asked to "think outside the box". I have started this company to pass along the joy that I have in creating beautiful things, to teach new skills, and to reinforce skills that are dormant in us. Hatch offers private classes at your home. Choose a class, invite some friends over, and learn to make something that you will be proud of!

At this weekend’s craft show, a woman was chatting to my neighbor, a potter. She said she had only one mission for the day: to find tooth fairy pillows for her grandsons. She said, “where on Earth am I going to find THAT?” I said, “um sorry for eavesdropping, but...” Two days later and I hope Henry hasn’t lost his first tooth yet!!
