The Makery San Jose cultivates and fosters the creative spirit of ‘Handmade’ in the heart of Downtown San Jose.
The Makery San Jose is a creative space that cultivates a spark of the ‘Maker Spirit’ and encourages the exploration of working with hand and mind to achieve simple objects of beauty. From textiles, to painting and trend classes, to seasonal classes, we offer many fun opportunities to learn new crafts.
Each class is designed to walk students through the basic ‘need to know’, jam packed into a three hour class with a 15 minute break. We get our hands dirty but we create beauty along the learning path resulting in a custom hand made project that you’ll be proud of. Our teacher(s) are highly skilled artisans and can offer great insight as they gently guide you through the production process.
The Makery San Jose is the brain child of Patricia Hill, former Creative Director, Art Director, Graphic Designer, Fashion Designer and Teacher. Patricia started her career in the Los Angeles Garment District and found a love for computers in a 750 Macintosh computer that changed her careers path. She started out in publishing houses as a Graphic Design and rose through the ranks to Art Director for various design agencies and later lead teams as a Creative Director for Fortune 500 Corporations. Eventually married and moved to San Jose (Silicon Valley) opened a Advertising Agency and branded and launching products/services for high-tech corporations and was the Creative Director that branded San Jose in 2010, the rest is history! What remains, is her artistic, maker’s spirit to grow and follow passion to inspire others to tap into thier inner creative.
