In such a rich concentration of creativity, it’s no surprise that Hollywood has been a Makers’ hub for over 50 years. As one might expect, there are set builders and clothing designers and professional makers who support the film industry, but there’s also a huge community of crafters, shapers, and engineers who make up LA’s Maker community.
Makeplus Community is a creative hub that was built with the aim of providing affordable space, tools, and opportunities to a range of makers. The space is divided into two main channels: Makeplus Community and Makeplus Fabrication. Makeplus offers multiple programs to support projects ranging from starter DIY’s to professionals. The team is made up of professionals with some having over a decade of experience in this space, available to assist and help you discover your true potential.
