What We Are

The Makery is a working studio in the Texas Hill Country, north of San Antonio and southwest of Austin. We occupy the former Roadhouse Arts building, and offer a wide variety of hands-on workshops in metalsmithing, jewelry-making, textiles, and mixed media taught by our talented resident instructors. Several times a year, we also bring in makers and artists from across the country to teach in-depth workshops, and we host an annual metals retreat at the charming Sage Hill Inn every spring.

Our retail space is filled with a revolving collection of handcrafted goods by makers from across the state of Texas – everything from jewelry and silk scarves for adornment to bowls, boxes, glass and softgoods for your home. Our vision is to help you fill your everyday life with beautiful things you can use and wear, at the same time that we provide a unique place for Texas makers to sell their work.
