Welcome to The Making Space

Enriching the Valley through creativity and connection

COVID-19 Update: In the interest of our community’s health and safety, our regularly scheduled Open Studio events are currently cancelled. Follow us on Facebook to find out about virtual events and other ways to connect during this time.

Who We Are

The Making Space is a nonprofit organization founded in 2016 with the goal of providing greater access to art-making in the community of Harrisonburg, Virginia.

What We Do

Each month we host free Open Studio events with the intent of connecting people to art and the community around them.

What We Value

We value creativity, connection, and learning, and we deeply believe that everyone is an artist.


“For those who haven’t been to the Making Space, it is a really fun, relaxing way to learn new skills that are doable by all.”
