#TheBuild is a pop-up program within the Chester Made Exploration Zone that brings together youth, artists, and the Chester community to design and build the future in Overtown. Chester Made artistic director Devon Walls, a team of artists from The Artist Warehouse, and Alex Gilliam of Public Workshop are working to bring residents together to exchange ideas about what should be built in Chester and design and fabricate a storefront and workshop.

Join us at 511 Avenue of the States for #TheBuild every Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m.to learn how to design and fabricate stools, tables, frames, and more! Contact us by emailingChesterMade or calling 800-462-0442 to talk more about volunteering and special projects.


Our doors are open, and we welcome you to get involved.
