We believe everyone should experience the satisfaction of working with your hands and being part of a creative community that values craft, sustainability, resource sharing, and resiliency. Our focus on woodworking comes from a passion for this warm, organic and sustainable material and because it is a practical and relatively easy way for beginners to start making.
Started in 2008 with just a handful of classes and a bare bones shop, Makeville has grown into NYC's top venue to learn woodworking and a rare commodity: affordable shared shop space. Our members are a community of craftspeople, artists and makers of diverse backgrounds and skill levels, but we share a common culture of professionalism, shop etiquette and safety. Join us and find out why a shop is so much more than tools and bench space.
What can I say about Michelle and this class? I had such a wonderful time in this class and plan on taking more with her. Fun and educational, and I made a sweet table. 100% would recommend.
Kelly was a great instructor!
Michelle was funny, engaging, and totally interested in us learning technique, theory, and having a good time. This class was so enjoyable and I cant Wait until the next one.
The BEST class.
This is the second time I’ve taken this class! Each time was terrific! Alan Dorsey is a superb teacher and master craftsman.
Great class, really enjoyed it. Learned a lot with Katie and was a lot of fun. Wish there was another one!
Taught by Michelle - she's a great teacher and very talented at what she does. I had no real experience with power tools and feel like I learned a ton. Class was very fun and light, but felt kind of intense how much you have to learn to put the project together. Definitely felt it was worth the time and the money for the experience. Felt invigorated after every class, even in the middle of the week, and hey this table's pretty good. Excited to do more - thanks Michelle!
Alan is a superb teacher and craftsman.
Great teacher, nice comfortable size class, cool project.
This was a great class and Kate is great teacher. She was knowledgeable and able to convey her knowledge to the class.
