Who are we.

Paint. Sew. Build props or costumes. Fix something. 

The Build Guild started as a space for individuals in the cosplay community to come together and create their costumes but our space quickly grew and attracted creative individuals across the artistic spectrum.

We have worktables, tools, and equipment to do it yourself. All for as low $3 per day or monthly memberships starting at $25 per month. We offer monthly workshops to teach skills or hobbies as well as “free stuff” donated to the Guild for our members to use. Your creative journey begins here.

Our Space

We have tools, equipment, and table space to build, make, and craft. We offer the option of private tables and 24 hour access. Builders can take advantage of our “Free Stuff Bin”, full of materials donated by members that are free to use here or take home.

TO TOUR:

We offer 6 guided tours of our makers space per month. You may register to be in one of our guided tours on our workshop page or call 260-209-9150 to register. It is $5 per person to join a tour when you pre-pay and pre-register. If you pay at the door, it is $10 per person. At the end of the tour, you will receive a $10 coupon, good for workshops or membership.
