New York City Companies You Want to Work For: Make Meaning

makemeaningAs a kid, did you ever go to a birthday party where you got to paint a ceramic figure, then take that figure home with you? I know I did; I always thought those were always the best parties. Now, imagine going to a place like that, but instead of limiting kids to ceramics, they can also make their own books, cards, paper crafts, faux stained glass, soap, candles, and even decorate their own cakes – sounds great, doesn’t it? Well that’s exactly what happens at Make Meaning, a craft-making destination for both children and adults (because sometimes, you just need to take a break from job hunting to decorate a cake.) Make meaning provides all of the equipment and space you need to make the things listed above and more.
