community for makers + doers

 

Our Mission

Makewell is all about creating a space for the local makers + doers to connect, learn, and be inspired by those around them. As makers, no matter your craft or industry, we often face the same challenges and raise the same questions. Let's come together to challenge each other to make better, to grow from one another's experiences, and to encourage each other's dreams.  Let's do this together.


"THE PROCESS OF MAKING MAKES ME FEEL WHOLE. YOU CAN DO IT JUST BECAUSE YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART THAT IT’S GOOD FOR YOU."   
 —JESSICA HISCHE

Maker Retreat? Heck yes!

Join local makers alike in a special weekend retreat crafted just for you! Come the end of the year it's time to get away from your normal surroundings to restore and relax, reflect on 2017 to kickstart an amazing new year, and connect with makers in your region going through the same challenges, obstacles, and victories. Through each other's shared stories and transparency, we fully expect you to meet your next mentor, colleague, and friend.

Included with your Makewell Retreat pass:


Limited maker passes available now through November 1st. See you there!

The Makewell Community

Makewell is made up of makers, doers, and risk-takers from all industries and crafts, and that's why we love it. We want to grow the maker community so that we can learn from one another and collaborate together. What are you waiting for?
