QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
WHAT DOES THE TERM "MAKER" MEAN? WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "MAKE"?
Here at Make Studio Inc., we believe a Maker is someone who expresses themselves through a creative skill. This includes artistic skills like drawing, painting, printing, sculpting and then includes a wider array of skill sets like sewing, crafting, zine making, flower arranging, and so much more.
To make is to actively create using one's imagination, skills and hard work. Ideally, making is creating things that are truly unique to you. It's the art of identifying your own signature (your passions, likes, dislikes, personal touch & style).
Within our creative studio and classes, we are always exploring the ever-expanding array of approaches that help makers express creativity. The possibilities are endless... So come join us—you'll be amazed at what you are capable of.
IS THE MAKE STUDIO SCHEDULE ALWAYS THE SAME?
Nope. We will be consistently offering certain classes that are favorites with youth, families and adults. We will also be adding new classes, hosting seasonal classes/camps and testing classes. If your are interested in the test classes, keep an eye out for the "Pop Up Class" announcements in our newletter and social feeds!
