What We Do
Maker creative workshops are an artistic night for YYC, and with your help the rest of Canada. Join a group of like-minded individuals craving a place and space to make awesome things.
How does it work? We open a poll of 3 potential crafts, you vote on the craft you'd like to make; that becomes our next workshop and of course we have our staples. We facilitate the event providing all supplies, social and loose instruction - it's all about letting your creativity run wild.
Rediscover your artist within at the most current restaurants in the city.
Why we are here
This past February we held our first, humble Maker workshop for a group of 14 guests (almost half of which were friends and family). Since then, we have hosted 26 workshops at 12 different venues hosting up to 70 guests for a single event.
Due to popular demand in and outside of Calgary, with your help we want to expand Maker to bring these social, creative workshops to the rest of Canada.
Help us inspire adults across Canada to try new artistic endeavours, eliminate the fear of getting creative beyond childhood and rediscover their artists within.
The funds raised will be invested in development of expansion across Canada, hiring of new facilitators / artists and all the costs that come with a blossoming new business. Through this campaign we will be able to inspire and expand to support more of you! We sincerely thank you so much for your support.
