1241 Carpenter

Over fifty artists and craftspeople working in an awesome 19th Century factory building. 

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Main Belting Company manufactured the enormous belts that kept the industrial gears spinning in Philadelphia and beyond.

Today our building is always buzzing with our many creative businesses and art studios. Local artists say, 1241 Carpenter remains one of Philadelphia’s long-lasting artist enclaves, and one of the best. The diverse group — a collection of painters, blacksmiths, book restorers, screen printers, and more — allows collaboration.


Here is a directory of the creative crew here at 1241 CARPENTER. (images will appear as the artists fill in their profiles.)
