Syracuse alum creates a natural space for creative thinkers to collaborate on and build original and imaginative projects.

After completing his MFA in Sculpture at Syracuse University, Michael Giannattasio was looking to regain the sense of community that came with university life. He had begun to compile tools for his own workshop, but missed the connection with other creators. Eventually this feeling led him to expand his vision of a workshop, and share both his knowledge and tools with the world by building a makerspace.

A schoolteacher, landscape designer and painter, Brett Rewakowski creates art that help others cope with loss.

Brett Rewakowski did not have it easy growing up. One by one, everyone who was close to him decided to leave. 

At 10 years old, his father had a heart attack. In college, his best friend died in a car crash. In his twenties, a hunter shot and killed his cousin. Years later after a fine party, his friend’s girlfriend insisted she wanted to drive. She was slightly drunk. On the way back, she flipped the car over, killing them both.

This pattern has continued.
