MakeHaven is a gathering place and workshop for makers, creators, tinkerers and dreamers. The environment supports the development and collaboration on a wide variety of projects, including: mechanics, electronics, crafts, digital art, biology and woodworking. Through cooperative projects led by MakeHaven members the project and program participants gain a greater understanding of how to create, repair and reuse items. In addition to project oriented activities the general public will benefit from skill building workshops hosted in the space. Every Tuesday night we open the space up so the public can interact with members and see technology such as 3d printers.

He was joined by his brother John after World War II, and they ran it together until 1963, whereupon they sold it to Robert O. Muller. Better known as Bob, he was an avid Japanese woodblock print collector, even having sold prints to the Merwin brothers before taking over the shop. In 1985, Bob handed the store over to his son Robert L. Muller, who is the present owner.

Music Haven’s mission is to use a string quartet to build a vibrant urban community through performance and music education that empowers young people, their families, and professional musicians. Music Haven was founded on the idea that excellence and equity need not be competing or mutually exclusive goals. We believe that all people should have access to quality arts learning opportunities. Therefore, Music Haven practices “in-reach,” performing, teaching, and understanding the needs of our traditionally marginalized communities.
Music Haven was also founded with the goal of bringing together people of all races, ethnicities, socio-economic class, genders, and ages to support each other through music, so that this world can be a better place for everyone to live in.
Therefore, Music Haven builds community by building strong relationships and helping everyone find a voice. Learning how to play and listen to music together is a transformative experience. Music Haven empowers both professional musicians and youth by giving them opportunities to use music as a vehicle for personal, artistic, and community growth. Our programs foster trust and strengthen skills that are critical to building a vital community – respect, responsibility, teamwork, communication, and creative problem solving.
