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.


We Believe In...

Community > Competition
At the very core of Makewell, we believe we’re better together. We learn, inspire, and challenge one another. And when one of us succeeds, we all succeed together as a regional creative hub. We are your tribe.

Diversity of Craft
No matter your craft or industry, we dedicate ourselves to coming alongside the makers, creators, and contributors of our community. We’re so grateful for your gift you’ve chosen to share with all of us.

Encouraging Vulnerability
We understand the making process can be very personal and therefore we commit ourselves to being open and honest in both seeking out and providing advice, support, and encouragement throughout the entire making process.

Supporting Local
We create word-class experiences for makers, by hiring world-class makers at their full value. We support the local maker community both emotionally and financially to see their craft and businesses thrive where they call home.

Magical Moments
In every experience we host, we strive to create surprising moments of joy for our attendees. We aim to reach above all expectations, so that every maker leaves feeling both noticed and valued.
