Entries in Alberta Street (2)
The Make House is located at 17th and Alberta. You can’t miss the space there is a sculpture out front of a giant beaver in Louis and Clark pose.
The Make House embodies the true Alberta Arts spirit. It is a communal space where several artists work. They also have a charming retail space with a sampling of work from the in house artists.
Nathan Reimer is the printmaker and also teaches screen printing classes there at the house. If you are interested in taking a class contact him through the link.
Alexa Stark is a fashion artist she occupies the upstairs studio of the house.
You may remember our Bolt Tea towels they were printed right here in the make house.

Just a few more things you may find at The Make House.
Stop by next time you are in the neighborhood. The screen printing classes are great!
I Love Red Bird Studio. They opened up shop soon after I opened up Bolt and I have loved them from the beginning. I don’t know if it’s the whimsical drawings, the amazing cut paper pieces, or the adorable and clever silk screened Ts and other goodies that make me love them so. The shop is located between 29th and 30th. When I walk to work I get to pass their window and be inspired and amused. They have some amazing window display talent! (I tried to snap a photo, but it would never do it justice.)
Ok, enough of my gushing, let’s get down to the details. This is a perfect stop off for any sweet gift you may need, either for yourself or others. Hand silk screened or painted or drawn note pads, clothing, bags, cards, even sushi pin cushions! They are stocked with Valentine’s cards, a few shown above. Mel and Paul are often working on something whenever I stop in and it’s always fun to see what they’re doing. I love how personal this store (and many of them on Alberta) is, that you can see the items come to life right in front of you. There’s always something new to find in this little gem of a store. Treat yourself or someone you love this Valentine’s!
