WeMake has had an amazing time playing in the creative space since 2016. In the spring of 2019 we held our last event and closed our doors. Thank you for playing, making, and sharing with us. It’s been a great ride!

Fueled by the passion for learning, sharing, and creating.
This is the foundation of WeMake.

We are a local, non-profit 501(c)(3)  that helps to foster art and design in Portland, Oregon's creative community through hands-on experiences, creative dialogue, and design-in-action initiatives. All of our events are focused on the process of making and the spirit of community.
