The MADE Scholarship Program is a funded membership and training program designed for underrepresented makers in the St. Louis region who are seeking access to a makerspace. This program includes membership and funding for training and equipment usage within our space. We’ve begun our next round of scholarships, and we’re very excited to share the awardees who are already on board:
Meet Becca Belleville! Becca is an artist, educator, and a mother to a toddler. She will be using MADE’s resources to create a series of CNC embroidered ‘paintings’ inspired by female abstract impressionist painters.
Meet Briauna Skrzypiec! Briauna is a 29 year old novice maker that enjoys everything about wood. She started working with wood for home projects in 2017, and is mostly self-taught from YouTube videos. At MADE, she’ll be able to finish several home projects like her 11 foot long mixed-media table.
Meet Terra Malick! Terra is a 33 year old trans-woman and aspiring furniture designer who is using MADE’s woodshop and CNC routers to develop a line of furniture that enhances the ambiance of her living/work space. She believes that creative built spaces have the power to soothe, to invigorate, and to inspire- her goal is to make furniture with healing aesthetics for stressful spaces.
Stay tuned to hear about 2022 awardee Lizzy Martinez, who will be starting the program in late spring.
