River Arts Makers Place is located at the I-26 and Riverside Drive entrance to Asheville’s River Art’s District. The former warehouse buildings we repurposed in 2016 into studio maker space. The inventive building will hold an array of studio artists from ceramics to mechatronics engineering. The Ramp Studios will consist of 30 plus tenants working within Asheville’s art community. The project is anchored by UNCA’s STEAM Team and the North Carolina Glass School, a state of the art glass center. This new center will be home to a public glass facility for artists, classes and gallery.
