Makers Mess is a collaborative effort, inspired by the goal of infusing everyday life with creativity, artistry and the joy of creating!




  Makers Mess offers creative workshops for kids & adults from their studios located in Silver Lake and Downtown LA.

Founder Brandy Lewis started Makers Mess with the idea that it’s not what you make, it’s that you make. We all need a break from our screens, our cars, our lives! Exercise what really matters: your creativity! Meet people. Make things.

Our awesome team of artists will take you through the basics and then give you the freedom to practice on your own. We deliver workshops for watercolor, calligraphy, punch needle, wood-burning, weaving, abstract painting, figure drawing, candle making, embroidery, ceramics, and more! We also host events, parties, children’s art camps and all kinds of professional and social gatherings that need some added creativity!



Makers Workshops: These workshops are curated in an inviting space for students to practice different mediums, at an affordable cost! Each workshop is led by one of our team members. Makers workshops are implemented to cultivate the creative community and explore different mediums in a supportive environment.

Guest Teacher Workshops: A guest teacher will lead students through an intensive exploration into a particular practice of art. Our guest teachers are practicing artists and specialists in a particular art field. They have created their own curriculum to help guide students in learning the vocabulary and necessary techniques needed to broaden their familiarity with a specific art form.

Kids Art Camps and Parties: Schools Closed but Makers Mess is Open! We host all kinds of holiday-themed art camps. In addition, we can create a unique, custom and creative experiences tailored to any theme or occasion you wish.

Parties and Corporate Events: Makers Mess hosts off-site and in-studio events. Whether team- building, or building your client relationships, we can deliver workshops and construct a creative atmosphere at any location you choose. Our brand-new ROW DTLA location is available for events and parties! Clients love our unique and engaging crafts tailored specifically to their brand, as well as our professional display and friendly staff.
