Have Fun


How Can The Magpie Maker Help You Get Creative Today?

With your kids?

Kids LOVE getting creative and we know that using their creativity helps them develop their mental, social, and emotional skills.

But, as a parent, providing creative fun for our children can be messy, confusing and sometimes scary.

Creative Kid Craft Groups provide weekly creative craft classes that parents and preschool children (aged from 3-5 years) can enjoy together. No prep, no mess at home and, during school holidays, older siblings can join the fun with your preschooler!

With other “grown ups”?

Magpie Maker workshops cover a wide range of different crafts but they all have one thing in common. They are specifically designed so that you can start and finish your “make” over the course of the workshop. No half finished projects and loads of support whilst you take your first steps towards your new hobby.

We take activities and break them down in such a way that every beginner can make something that they’re proud of. Plus you get loads of resources to take away so that you can continue at your own pace.

In your own home?

The Magpie Maker blog has a huge range of tutorials and resources so that you can make cool stuff in the comfort of your own home!

There are crafts for adults and kids and we cover loads of different materials such as papercrafts, plastics, fabric and metals. Each on is broken down into easy steps and there are often videos or free printables to make each step really easy to follow.

Why not have a browse and find something gorgeous to keep yourself busy?
