Who are we.

Do you want to paint a picture? Sew your own wedding dress? Build your own prop or costume? Maybe fix a broken coffee table? 

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 the table space and an extensive selection of expensive tools and equipment to Do-It-Yourself all for as low $20 per month. We offer monthly workshops to teach skills or hobbies as well as a wall of “free stuff” to help you get started in your creative making process. Your creative journey begins here.

Our Space

We have tools, equipment, and table space for creative individuals to craft. We offer the option of dedicated locked 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 in any of your projects.

When to tour

We are open for tours Monday – Friday , 8:30am – 5:30pm. Ask to see the facility with one of the attendants at The Recovery Room (upstairs). Give us a call to ask general questions 260-341-3406.
