Private Lessons

Let us help you realize a dream project, learn new skills, or collaborate on a design or prototype.

Lessons can be tailored to a specific skill or tool and help you move forward with your project. Or schedule a design consult to assess how buildable your project really is and outline a plan to get it done based on your skills and budget.

Private lessons and design consultations are available at $90/hr (includes studio rental and equipment fees).

New clients - Please contact us to discuss your project/needs and get an estimate before scheduling an appointment.

Luca Ameri |

I am a builder, designer and teacher based in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve worked design-build outfits and professional fabrication shops before shifting my practice in a more educational direction, joining Makeville Studio in 2019. I learned the art of building through hands-on experimental methods and believe anyone has the ability and responsibility to do the same. I specialize in teaching beginners looking to learn a new skill or develop confidence in an established one. Don't be scared, let's learn to build something together!
