21st Century Living Suffocates Artful, Unscripted Living


 It just does.  And the hustle that creeps into the everyday leaves little room for making. Making art, craft, poetry, community...

Which is why MAKE was founded.  This online art & crafting group is designed to get Creatives back to weekly making. With live co-working sessions, deep-dive workshops on creativity/life, & ongoing feedback for creative work,  MAKE invites you to bring yourself & your making supplies; that's it. Come frazzled or fine, inspired or empty, chatty or shy.

Because often all we need is carved-out time & the energy of other Creatives.

21st Century Adulthood Suffocates

 Artful, Unscripted Living

It just does.  And the hustle that creeps into the everyday leaves little room for making.

Despite the gnawing emptiness left in the wake of a too-busy life, cultivating artful living is an undeniable challenge.

Which is why MAKE was founded - an online art group designed to ensure weekly creative practice.

MAKE invites you to bring yourself & your making supplies; that's it. Come frazzled or fine, inspired or empty, chatty or shy.


Because often all we need is a bit of accountability & a ready-made creative space.

Welcome to

make.

Hello! I'm Kathryn Snell-Ryan and like you, my hat collection is sizable - maker, parent, full-time job juggler, seeker of levity, Art Therapist, & so on for infinity...   Alas, I’m not quite sure about your dreamy visions, but most of mine include some version of the maker part of me.  It's here I notice small and strange beauties, where I really see.  Messy studio clothes, mind wandering, sketches laid out, marks clear & confident.  I am lost in the very best way.

This dreamy version of me does exist, but for way longer than I'd care to admit - hardly ever.  Despite falling in love with making in my teens, undergrad degree in Fine Arts, and a Master’s in Art Therapy from one of the most prestigious art schools in the nation - adulting went on to squeeze the creative life blood out of me.  

I yearned to make, could smell the clay, kept my sketchbook barely-active, had brief bouts of art production that didn't last, dreamed of 1,000 versions of a perfect little studio.  And yet my daily bandwidth just couldn't stretch far enough.  I am only one person, my childs' only mother, responsible for half my family's income….   You know the drill - 21st century living leaving the well of creativity bone-dry.

And so alas, the spirit of 'create what you need' led to the formation of MAKE.  If you find yourself needing a committed creative practice but struggle to nail it down, I'd love to welcome you in. xx

MAKE Is Right For You If...

  • Having weekly creative time is desired but it's difficult to show-up consistently.
  • You can free up your Tuesday or Wednesday evening for 1.5-2 hours (even if it takes negotiating, finagling, or sneaking the time).
  • You want a place to be quiet & just make alongside the collective energy of others.
  • You want to creatively explore who you are through the lens of Art Therapy.
  • And finally, if you can already picture, down in your guts & bones, the version of you working creatively, headphones in, mind & hands alight with creative energy.

Let's face it, none of us really need more fancy art stuff to 'prep' for our next project... WE SIMPLY NEED TIME TO MAKE & THE COMMITMENT TO STICK WITH IT.

This is an in-depth workshop identifying the primary negative belief you live with & how it inherently impacts your life, relationships & creativity.  This is a therapeutic ‘sleuthing’ experience designed to help crafters & artists free up creative energy by putting a magnifying glass on the tiresome beliefs we hold about ourselves whether conscious or subconscious in nature.
