Who We Are
New Orleans enjoys a year-round celebration of unique cultural arts. We opened NOLA Craft Culture to be a local resource for our art community and an opportunity to spotlight, encourage, and expand the artistic treasures of our home.
For us it started with a love of glitter and a few hand-decorated throws. But we have discovered how much fun we have creating with others and how much we can learn from each other. Crafting is a way to express yourself, release your inner artist, break the ice, team build, bond, pass time, party, stand out, blend in, sparkle and pop. In this digital world, we could all use a little more handcrafting in our lives.
We live in a city brilliantly bedazzled with beads, feathers, sequins, rhinestones, and lots and lots of glitter. Join us and discover that down here, in New Orleans, we plan our entire year around our craft culture.
This is not a hobby. This is a way of life.
Keep it Here!
Not everyone loves glitter as much as we do. It's for this reason that we offer the craft storage area! It's a room at NOLA Craft Culture where you can lock up your supplies or a project that isn't quite dry.
Space can be rented by the day, week, month, and year.
Our Crafty Owners: Lisette and Nori
Lisette Constantin is a lifelong New Orleanian, avid costumer, Muse, Merry Antoinette, and shameless lover of all things that sparkle. After moving away from NOLA to earn a PhD in clinical psychology, she discovered an important truth: New Orleans is the home of her heart. She of course moved back as quickly as possible. After joining the Krewe of Muses she learned another important truth, life is simply more fun when it’s covered in glitter. Together with Nori, she then figured out how to make glitter her livelihood with NOLA Craft Culture.
Nori Pritchard is the sparkle-obsessed crafter behind the blog "Confessions of a Glitter Addict." She's a Ben Franklin alum who holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering. When she's not glittering or deep in discussion about handmade Carnival throws, she's usually chasing around her two little boys, Matthew and Tommy, who she is raising in Mid-City with her husband Nathaniel "Downtown" Twarog. Nori is most proud of her Cherry Pie shoe featured on the annual shoe series bead thrown in the 2019 Muses parade.
