The Forge invites you to an immersive craft experience with libations and local artisans. Enjoy hands-on leatherwork demonstrations, a Makers Mark tasting and heavy hors d'oeuvres from 1618 downtown. Leave with a leather accessory you made and bottle of bourbon you will drink (eventually).
In addition to featuring artisans in food, beverage, and leather, the Maker’s Taste also supports artisanship in our community. The money raised during this event will support next year’s Makerships, which are free or discounted memberships the Forge offers to the financially challenged.
The 60 Makerships in 2019 included students, teachers, veterans, retirees, and individuals experiencing homelessness. The recipients of Makerships are valued for and selected by their eagerness to learn, teach, create, and collaborate using the resources at the Forge. Your attendance helps the Forge value Greensboro’s makers for what they can create instead of what they can afford.
