For Furniture Junkies: Makeville Studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn

Large arrow left

At Makeville Studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn, you need to BYOW (Bring Your Own Wood).

That, and a creative mindset.

Everything else--from classes, tips to tools--the studio provides. Started by creatrix Robin Mierzwa, Makeville is one of those place you'd really never know existed unless you were specifically looking for it, or heard about it through word of mouth.

Mierzwa rarely advertises. "We want people who come here to really want to learn how to make things with their own hands," she says. You can rent space on a monthly basis, as well as pay extra for storage of your own supplies and finished products.
