Workshops & Events

Bee a part of building an inspired, empowered, resilient & peaceful community!

THE HIVE is a meditative art studio and boutique with a cozy café vibe offering meditative art workshops, recovery art workshops, community-building events, up-cycled art and handmade creations to inspire, empower and transform people and communities.


Our mission is to build happy, empowered, resilient and peaceful people and communities. We do this by connecting people (you) to one-another, to nature and to your center—where you have the opportunity to re(discover) your passions, purpose and strengths. We work to develop empathy in the community and to inspire you to access your creativity and the power of your stories to help you feel whole, connected and able to manifest the transformations you desire in life!




Located in the historic Hurley factory at 37 Greenwoods Road, New Hartford, CT, we’re home to Ovation Guitars, Parrott Delaney Tavern, Lam Yoga, The Farmington River Artisans Guild, Quilted Ewe, Autumn Light and a diverse group of art studios and businesses!

We’re here because the Hurley family had a vision to renovate the building to studio spaces and create a vibrant artistic community where the public would feel welcome. We’ve got some new arrivals to the factory and lots of cool things brewing. Come visit us soon!

Contact Donna at THE HIVE for an appointment or stop in to see if we’re open!
