Rediscover the Artist Within

 

We give you the time, space and inspiration to create.

Welcome to Maker YYC.

Come join a group of like-minded makers that are craving a night out to kick back, meet new friends and try their hand at trendy, new DIY projects.
All skill levels are welcome as our workshops are inclusive, easy going and fun!

Haven’t done a DIY since elementary? Terrified of what you might create? Awesome. You’ve come to the right place. Our workshops provide you with all supplies, loose instruction and a glitter bomb of inspiration - then it's up to you to muster the courage to let your creativity run wild.

Rediscover your artist within at the best venues in our city.


Date Night

Whether it's a Tinder date, or your anniversary, Maker offers the perfect experience to share with a special someone.  No beaux? No problem. Round up the squad and make it a ladies night out, or mom's night off.

An Original Night Out

Don't get us wrong - we love going out for drinks with friends. In fact, it's one of our favourite things to do. DIYs added a unique twist to happy hour attracting like-minded people who are looking to kick back, catch up or meet new friends.

Express Yourself

We start every workshop with a creative exercise to help you let go of inhibitions and feel comfortable unleashing your creativity. We offer inspiration and technical tips, then leave it to you to create a completely unique piece. 

Discover New Venues 

There are so many amazing local venues to discover in our city. Whether they are known for their unique cocktails, craft beers, cool atmosphere, or mouth-watering eats, they are carefully selected to enhance your experience.



I had such an amazing time at the makers crystal event! I can’t wait to do another one! I am new to the Calgary area and am very nervous to explore but this event made it so easy and worth it! Thank you Makers!

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Maker YYC on a few different events at our restaurant group. They have been nothing but a pleasure to deal with. Maker YYC handled all of their own promotions to fulfill all agreed upon seats. The clientele they brought to our establishments were all just as lovely as their organizers! Would definitely recommend to other business owners.
