Back in November we started talking about all the things we love to do and why we love them. We thought how cool would it be to get together with a group of people to learn about making stuff, make stuff, and make an impact with stuff we made. There was just four of us in the beginning, myself, Lizy Gershenzon, Scott Baker and Darren Cools. While we formulated our approach, three attributes guided our direction: passion, process, and the spirit of community. With this focus, WeMake took flight—and we’ve been soaring since then, thanks to you.

When it comes to teamwork, the crew at ADX is the perfect example. ADX offers up an amazing facility with wood and metal shops, co-working desks, and big open areas for large projects. They provide the opportunity for makers of all types to explore their craft, prototype products, and enlist the support of industry experts.
Two Portland/ADX makers, Jon James Staton and Alexandria Cummings put their heads together to create this well-crafted and creative birdhouse. Let’s hear a little more about what makes them tick and see how this project came together.

The WeMake crew is working hard to get things ready for our Put a Bird In It party and auction that will be taking place during Design Week Portland. Local, national and international artists answered our call to action and created amazing birdhouses that will be auctioned off to help raise money for arts and music education in Portland schools. Its going to be one hell of a party too.
Here is another look at one of the amazing birdhouses that will be available for auction from the team at Struck. They put a modern twist to their project and created a sleek, Mondrian themed house. Let’s take a look at how their house came together.
