Take a Tour of our
Firehouse Craft Gallery!

bldgfrontnew.jpgCraft Company No. 6, craft gallery of handmade American and Canadian fine craft is located in a historic Victorian firehouse Engine Company No. 6, on ARTWalk in Rochester's Neighborhood of the Arts.

For more than 30 years Craft Company No. 6 has specialized in American  handmade jewelry, woodcraft, blown glass, pottery, fiber and metal arts. Our gallery is a favorite for artistic jewelry, unique handmade gifts and home furnishings.

In honor of Craft Company’s 25th Anniversary in 2005, local artist Michael Chiazza was commisioned to give our firehouse a creative new look. The bright-colored, intricately patterned awnings he painted make Craft Company No. 6 easy to spot.

When you first enter our main craft gallery, you’ll find yourself surrounded by creativity. This place is where fire engines pulled by a team of horses were once housed. Innovative handmade jewelry will be the first crafts to catch your eye.

We are proud to be upstate New York’s exclusive craft gallery representative of Sticks™ furniture and object art. Our Sticks collection is extensive and our staff is well trained to help you design a custom piece.  

Courtyardcopy.jpgFollow the curving brick path through creative displays of handcrafted home furnishings to the rear of this room, turn right and take a detour into our outdoor courtyard. In our large courtyard you will find birdhouses and feeders, wind chimes, sculpture, garden stakes and much more to add a creative touch to your own garden retreat.

Once back inside the craft gallery, the next room you enter will be our cabin. Builder Gary Stam wanted to build a cabin and that’s just what he did, right in the middle of the store. Step onto the front porch listen to the rain on the roof as it runs into the gutter and through the downspout. You’ll soon forget you’re in the middle of the city. Inside the cozy, woodsy cabin you’ll find all sorts of creative accessories for your own get-away retreat.

You’ll have to head back to the front of the store to get to the stairs that will bring you to our second floor.

 

Be sure you visit our funky bathroom with purple, yellow and green walls. It’s filled with  creatures and lamps sure to delight the younger generation.

The upstairs front room, which is now our fine jewelry and collector craft gallery, was once the firemen's living room. Be sure you look up to the cupola to see the old photos of what our firehouse looked like in the early 1900's. In the photo over the front windows you will see “Chubby” (click to learn more about Chubby) Rochester’s most famous fire horse pictured in our driveway with a fireman of the era. In front of Craft Company No. 6, Chubby and his fireman are now immortalized in a life-size sculpture by local artist Vincent Massaro.chubby.jpg
 

 

 

 

 

Our fine jewelry collection includes handmade jewelry of the best quality from leading American jewelry designers working in gold, platinum and fine silver. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and wedding bands shine with creativity. We have received a great deal of praise about what a pleasant experience it is to purchase fine jewelry from our friendly, knowledgeable staff.

You’ll also find some wooden cutting boards and our popular gourmet foods. An old wood and coal burning stove is another display prop that attracts much attention. Chip 'n dip servers are our most popular pottery item and we have a large selection from a variety of artists.

Kitchensalsa.jpgAlso in the pottery room you will find gourmet savories to sample. Be sure to take home a jar of Screamin' Mimi’s award winning salsa, a Craft Company favorite.

On your way out be sure to take a few minutes to enjoy the gardens in front of Craft Company No. 6 and take note of the spectacular wide sidewalks. This is ARTWalk, a permanent urban art trail, connecting the arts centers and public spaces within the Neighborhood of the Arts (NOTA). ARTWalk is an interactive outdoor museum, located on University Avenue between the Memorial Art Gallery and the George Eastman House. We hope you enjoyed the tour. Please visit us soon!
