A little over a decade ago, American artists Sara Amrhein and Anna Rose founded the cultural association Creative People in Florence. Last autumn, Scottish potter Kirstie Mathieson joined the team, bringing experience in organizing events and working within the creative community. Together, they are excited to announce a creative space in the Oltrarno. 

After many years of building a network of artists, designers and artisans, the cultural association has just opened a community space at via dei Serragli 58R, where they will organize and curate an exciting lineup of hands-on workshops and demos for adults and children, as well as pop-up events, art exhibitions and many other creative activities. The group will also host meet-ups, feedback sessions and panel discussions about a variety of topics to help Florence’s creative community flourish and thrive. The new location will also provide a space for those who are looking for a way to exhibit their work on a short-term basis or to teach individual classes in their medium. 

During the month of April, look out for workshops for polymer clay (April 3), pottery (April 4) and punch needle embroidery, a creative networking meet-up and a three-day pop-up market of artisan-made design objects and fashion. The space does not have fixed hours, so if you’re interested, get in touch with CPiF to organize a visit. 

To keep up to date with upcoming events, head over to, follow them on Instagram or join the Facebook group Creative People in Florence. To find out more about how you can host your own events, send an email to If you would like to become a member of the association, the fee is 25 euro per year or send an email to for one-time donations. All funds will be used to support the creative community in Florence.
