What to do in Lincoln, Nebraska?
While most of the Makit Together classes will be held at our centrally located craft studio, if you join us for the whole week (or decide to stay a few extra days) there will certainly be time to do some extra exploring on your own or with new friends! So we wanted to highlight a few things you might enjoy in our city!
About the Hotel
We have partnered with Residence Inn by Marriott South to create a special room rate for Makit Together: A Grown-Up Craft Camp. We encourage campers to stay here if you are able and will organize some fun meet-ups in the area!
Getting to Makit Takit
We recommend flying into either the Lincoln or Omaha airport if arriving by air. If you fly into Omaha's Eppley Airfield (OMA), it will be about an hour drive to reach Lincoln.
We will be giving out more detailed travel related information (shuttles, carpools, etc...) after registration.
Makit Takit is located at 4750 Normal Boulevard in Lincoln, Nebraska.
