Manifesto is a strategic design studio, built to realize the awesome potential of design in society. 

We offer a range of workshop-style classes in traditional and modern crafts, including woodworking, bookbinding, and leatherworking. We will soon offer 3D printing, screen-printing, metal working, and more. Rose and Arjun, co-founders of Manifesto, both teach at Parsons School of Design.

Woodworking: Build a Custom Table

My girlfriend and I had a blast building our custom table! Rose, who coordinated the session, was friendly, helpful, and easy to communicate with. Arjun, the instructor was a great teacher and guide - he showed us woodworking fundamentals and important safety precautions. Most importantly, it was a fun and informative experience which resulted in a beautiful custom side table for our living room. I would highly recommend the staff, the studio, and the class.

What a great way to disconnect and do something creative for a few hours! I was new to bookbinding, but the class is structured in a way that makes it easy to follow along. Arjun and Rose were great, the space is very warm and approachable, and the sparkling water and peanut M&Ms were a huge plus too! Definitely recommend...
