Kyle and Johannah of Phoenix Handcraft established RVA Makers in 2013 to foster community around people who make awesome stuff in Richmond, VA. This group is free and open to all. Our goal is to show off the creative talent that makes Richmond such a great city. 

The heart of RVA Makers is the monthly meet-up. The third week of every month a local maker throws open their studio doors to host an evening of fun and learning. We keep the conversation going online between meet-ups in our lively Facebook group.

This is a great experience for anyone wondering "how's that made?". Come out and shake the hands that make it!

If you are a maker interested in hosting a meet-up, we invite you to come on out to one of our monthly meet-ups and see what we're all about!

Keep up with RVA Makers!

Local makers interested in hosting, please contact Kyle at (804) 888 - 9778 or We are interested in local makers of all sorts in the RVA area!
