Maker Info

  • Who do we consider to be a Maker?
  • We acknowledge the term Maker can mean different things to different people depending on their background, industry, knowledge and personal experience. However, for the purposes of the findamaker directory we consider a Maker to be someone who makes and creates any one or number of the following:

    • Any product by hand - this may include the making and creation of things such as clothing, beauty products, woodwork, toys, jewellery, candles, home decor, furniture
    • Art - this may include a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, graffiti, print, photography
    • Music - this may include those who write, perform and/or produce music
    • Literature - this may include published authors and those who can produce a written product on request
    • Culinary delights - this may include food artists, local catering services, the at home baker, the cake artist
    • Garden related produce - this may include those who grow flowers, plants, succulents, herbs, fruit or vegetables for general household use

    We are sure the above list will continue to grow however findamaker is not a directory for businesses that offer products that are manufactured and/or imported from abroad.

    It is a directory for those everyday people who are at home in their community making and creating products that they love and care about.

    If you have any questions around who we consider to be a Maker, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
