What Makes 'Em Shine: MakeATX is a member-based workshop with a variety of fabrication tools–tools for making things! The workshop currently has a powerful, versatile and user-friendly laser cutter capable of cutting, etching, and engraving a wide variety of materials up to 36″ x 24″, brand new computers with the latest design software, and workspace along with classes designed to help Austinites realize those creative school, work or do-it-yourself projects they’ve been kicking around. We make our own products (under the name Bright Beam Goods) and also help others with theirs. Our workshop is a place where creative types come together to craft, create, collaborate and inspire one another.
The shop is located at the satellite art studios in east Austin (1109 b Shady Lane) and is open to members 6 days a week for their diverse fabrication needs.
Meet The Owners: MakeATX was founded in 2010 by owners, operators, and makers-in-chief Eve Trester-Wilson and Kristen von Minden. Eve and Kristen are friends who share a background in architecture, a taste for power tools & a passion for crafting.
