The Makery Launches Open Studio

Do you have an awesome Pinterest project you’ve been dying to make, but haven’t been able to run out for the supplies? Want to create a handmade present for Mom or escape from midterm stress for a while? The Makery can help with its new Open Studio hours.

The Makery, a light, bright art studio located at 209 W. Calder Way, specializes in creative classes, parties, and events. Recently, The Makery also instituted “Open Studio” hours — time for students and community members to use this unique workspace and its supplies.

Open Studio’s goal is to provide a creative space and access to standard arts and crafts supplies. Unique “Maker Kits” are also available for those who want pre-packaged materials for a unique, trendy project.

“We love the energy Penn State students bring to the space, and they love the indie, artsy vibe here. They also love the free coffee bar,” said Makery owner Amy Frank.

Guests have access to a variety of supplies for sewing, painting, scrapbooking, collages, and more. The Makery keeps a stock of paints, markers, canvas, paper, and fabric scraps, sewing machines, etc. for customer use.

Maker Kits range from decorations to jewelry and change seasonally. Currently available are dream catchers, a tassel necklace, DIY coasters, and a stamped tote bag.

The studio is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Students receive a special discount of $5 per hour and memberships are available. Student groups can also schedule private parties and fundraisers at The Makery.
