y(OUR) SHOP / Try a Class

MAKEbhm connects with creative people in many ways, but the two most important are through classes and memberships. Our classes welcome students of various skill levels, whether they are trying something new, developing their skills with a professional instructor, or sharing a hands-on experience with others in the community. Memberships allow professionals, semi-pros, even new students, to be trained on our shared equipment, work on their own projects, and collaborate with other makers during open shop hours.
