Higher Ground Workshops was founded with the intent to give local makers and crafters a space where they can share their skills and passions with others while welcoming members of the community to learn, play and make new connections.

Owner Laura Beningo has always had diverse hobbies and she loves learning new crafts. After 10 years in the military, Laura decided to integrate her enthusiasm for camaraderie and collaboration with her love of learning.

HG workshops provides tools, materials, and instructor support for people to bring their creative ideas to life.

The workshops are intended to promote a sense of being supported, a feeling of accomplishment, and curiosity for what is possible, she said.

Current workshops include wreath making, candle making, woodworking basics, wood boring, clay crafts, paint nights, knitting, and much more. Higher Ground can incorporate any of those crafts into a private party, fund-raising or corporate team-building events.

The business is located at 950 Tilton Road, No. 102. For information, call 609-445-4844.
