Welcome to the MakerVerse.

Over a year in the making, the MakerVerse is a labour of love. 

This past year we have been working on ways to expand beyond Maker House; focusing on the user & our online shopping portal while keeping up with the charm of in-person shopping. Today we officially rebrand as the MakerVerse!

We’d like to thank all of you for supporting our small business and making it possible for us to level up into the future!

Need a last minute gift on your way to an event? Wanting to shop local from anywhere you might be? Well we’ve got you covered as we are finally launching this year long project as we rebrand from Maker House to… the MakerVerse! It's an immersive and interactive shopping experience; where you can stay at home, while keeping up with the newest local products & makers!

Meet your own personal AI shopping assistant, Ash. She'll be there with you every step of the way, and is trained to know the story of every Maker we carry! 


  • Gather with friends at our virtual workshops and events in store, with no capacity limitations!
  • Wooden VR Headsets made at our Ottawa Woodshop, specifically to help you visit the MakerVerse from anywhere.
