ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS
Makers Workspace was founded by long time friends Jacques Janson and John Henry. Their mission was to create safe, affordable studios spaces that fill the need for the East Bay's outstanding creative community.
Flash back 3 years to when Makers 1st opened (and didn't even have walls yet!) in this Berkeleyside article.
