HELLO!

Thanks for visiting. We love makers. Like a lot. We have a crazy dream where anyone who wants a handmade business will have all the tools and resources they need to be successful and sustainable. And they will get mad props for being awesome too.

That's what we are all about in a nutshell, but if you want to know more about us the best way is to get on our newsletter (you can sign up below). 


CELEBRATING MAKERS: Not aNother Awkward Party

Join us for the only awards show for makers, by makers!  This is our third year honoring the outstanding work of makers and others who support and build up our community. It truly is a community event with makers from all over in attendance. 

The AHAS Awards presented by The UPS Store will be held in Downtown Los Angeles at The Wheelhouse. Along with noshes, music and a cash bar, the event will also feature a gallery and raffle of the work of Academy of Handmade members and awards finalists. The raffle will benefit the amazing work of the Downtown Women's Center, whose Handmade by DWC program helps homeless women become handmade entrepreneurs.
