In the Summer of 2015, husband and wife team, Pete Houser and Tia Lambert, co-created the concept of a creative arts learning resource in Marin County to bridge the art world, the craft community, and the creative maker movement. The aim of Make Studio Inc. is to provide a stimulating environment for makers of all ages to explore the possibilities in the arts and crafts through educational creative workshops. Our intention is to help others get creative and to find the confidence to keep making!
