Makers of Things × Lovers of the North



what do we do at Makers North?

Well, we make things. 

We are also committed to supporting, showcasing, and being cheerleaders for our maker community. Cause that's just awesome. Picture us right now with pom-poms leading a cheer. 

We also really enjoy planning events that bring talented northern makers and artists together with our outstanding community. (Gosh, our community is fabulous, isn't it?)
