Home goods and crafts store Altamira Workshop opened last weekend at 217 6th Avenue in Park Slope. Owners Philip Sachs and Amy Fierro sell handmade items, many of them produced locally, such as ceramics, jewelry, stationery, art and home goods.
The owners have “created an in-house brand of goods that emphasize a combination of affordability and high design,” according to the shop’s press release. They’ve been teaching printmaking classes and selling their prints for years at outdoor markets like the Flea, and now they’ll offer consultations on printmaking and an onsite print shop at Altamira.
The shop’s name refers to the Cave of Altamira in Spain, which contains some of the earliest known Paleolithic cave paintings. GMAP
