"Calling all artists!


Are you looking for a place where you can work while surrounded by likeminded creators?

If so, head on down to 30 Foundry St. in Waterbury, the location of MakerSphere, which offers studio space for artists looking to court the muse..." - Josh O'Gorman, The Waterbury Record

Studios are ready!

Waterbury MakerSphere, a volunteer organization dedicated to creating an incubator space for artists, creators and makers has signed a lease at 30 Foundry St. in downtown Waterbury! This will create individual studio spaces as well as a common room.  Several studios are spoken for but a couple are still available to rent.


"This is another step toward making Waterbury a regional hub for creativity and innovation," said President John Bauer. "Affordable, dedicated space is essential for the creation of art, starting a business, or even just for self-fulfilling personal work."


Part of the goal of MakerSphere is to build a community that can be supportive. Gathering artists and makers together allows for the exchange of ideas and talents.
