Welcome to Make + Take Studio at Frigg's Mercantile!

Frigg's Mercantile was named after the Norse goddess of the home; it is a cozy shop carrying crafty and urban homesteading wares. Housed within the shop is Make + Take Studio, where kids and kids-at-heart get the hands-on opportunity to explore new crafts or hone an existing one.

Join a Make + Take Studio workshop to create soap, candles, jewelry, cheese, and more. We also love hosting private parties and creative gatherings; everyone gets to learn and take home their creations!


Workshops + Camps

Beginning and advanced makers can learn a new skill in our Make + Take workshops! Learn to make your own candles, soap, bath bombs, and more! We also host ongoing camps for kids throughout the summer, during school breaks, and in preparation for gift-giving holidays.


Products + Supplies

Everything you need for your crafty adventures! We carry core essentials for soap-making, candle-making, cheesemaking and other -makings! We also carry DIY kits on a variety of topics. Stop by and say hello or peruse our supplies online.


Parties + Private Events

Birthdays, bachelorette parties, baby showers... we've done it all. We even travel to off-site events to bring the fun to you! We also open our doors to groups looking for a private gathering in our bright, open, and welcoming space. Rent just the studio or the entire shop!

Anything we do at Frigg's can be done in a typical (read: tiny) Portland kitchen with just a few specialty items. Below are some of our favorite homesteading topics, and we're always learning about more ways to move towards a more sustainable, handcrafted lifestyle.


Homemade Bath & Beauty

GOOD FOR YOUR BODY - naturally!

Making your own bath bombs, lotions, lip balms, and more is a fun and easy way to cut on costs and reduce waste. Frigg's hosts ongoing workshops and often hosts private parties for those wanting to create custom bath & beauty products.

Soap making

Cold Process, handmade Soap

Once you know the basics, it is easy to make your own soap from scratch, using a few simple ingredients. More advanced soapers can also find an array of oils and butters at the store, as well as a variety of colorants and additives. Check our calendar for our next workshop, held monthly.
