THE MAKERS SPACE – A MEETING POINT FOR CREATIVE MINDS

In the beautiful hills of Tala, near Agios Neophytos Monastery, lies The Makers Space, a unique and creative art facility hosting membership-based studio and gallery space for artists and ceramists.

The whole concept was born about 5 years ago when its creator, Lee-Anne Raw, was in search of something with a meaning. As a ceramic maker, she was on a quest for a small studio space when she discovered the beautiful stone building close to the monastery.  It was a matter of time until she renovated and transformed it into the present incredible art facility.

The Makers Space offers a range of membership options that cater for full-time artists, serious art hobbyist as well as beginners. Currently, the space hosts a team of 20 people while it covers classes on a weekly bases for about 14-18 children.  The space also offers a series of events and exhibitions which are listed on its Facebook page.

Quoting Lee-Anne Raw… ’Arts come with a challenge… in our personal journey we need to push ourselves to find what we are capable of’.
