Welcome the Richmond 'Find A Maker' Directory! The goal of this Directory is to raise awareness of the products and services provided by Makers in the metro Richmond area, and help create connections within the Maker community. It is created and run by RVA Makers, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Richmond, VA.
The Richmond 'Find A Maker' Directory makes it easier for consumers looking for handmade products, retailers wanting to sell locally made items, contractors searching for small-scale manufacturers and fabricators, and businesses wanting local contacts for their projects of all sizes.
The cost of a listing in the Directory is currently $30/year. We are promoting the directory among local business hubs and online resources. We are also offering sponsorship levels - if you are interested in sponsorship please contact us here.
Please do join the Directory if you:
Make goods with your hands in the Richmond area
own or operate a place where people can make stuff
run or organize events where makers show or sell
sell or provide things to make stuff with
offer non-maker services to help makers (lawyer, accountant, designer, mentor, etc)
own or operate a venue where makers show or sell
Please do not join the Directory if you:
Don't make or sell locally made products/services or provide resources to makers
Have no contact info, website, store, or social media links (we want people to be able to find and contact you)
QUESTIONS: If you have questions about the Directory, please check our guide to creating a listing. If you do not find your answer, you can contact us. BUT - we are an all-volunteer board of full-time makers ourselves. We will do what we can to help promptly, but please understand that we do not have full-time tech support. You can also contact Wild Apricot, our web-app host, at support.wildapricot.com
