Avondale is famous for its breweries, bars, eat and more. But did you know that the area is home to a creative collaborative space called MAKEbhm?

MAKEbhm provides access to equipment and coworking studios for local artists and businesses. Recently Quake, a plus-size resale clothing shop, opened a studio at MAKE, adding to the myriad of makers stationed there.

We’re excited to see them opening their studio classes back up after a wild two years. As of right now, they are slowly getting back on track by adding consistent classes to their calendar.

Enrollment opens on April 5th at 11AM at makebhm.com/enroll. Let’s take a look at the fun classes you can take, Birmingham.
