Make here. Learn here. Grow here.

Made in NYC Learning Lab provides free workshops and creative services to NYC brands, manufacturers, and makers. We partner with Pratt Institute’s world-class faculty in design and communications to offer workshops and services that help companies tackle their greatest marketing challenges and tell more compelling stories. All Learning Lab programs are made possible by the generous support of the New York City Council and the Garment District Alliance.
