Hi, my name is Lisa and I design modern craft kits loved by children, teens and adults.

Are you looking to reclaim a childhood hobby or simply looking for some time out to recharge and relax? A MakeKit box can do just that.

Did I mention each kit comes with everything you need? Because let's face it - running around sourcing all the materials is just another job you really don't need (or want) in your life.


So how did MakeKit come about?

Well, I was searching for gifts which were fun to make, but also needed to be useful and modern (not the least bit hippie-looking). I'd had it up to HERE with rubbish craft kits that lived in a cupboard, collecting dust. So, I started making my own, tested them on friends and it's grown from there.


Who am I?

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, I am the only 'girl' in my house. I love the colour turquoise, New York and some days I just want cereal for dinner. And as a Mum of two boys I know that it's tricky fitting everything in, making sure the kids aren't on devices too much and wondering why on earth the year is flying by so fast. We're all time-poor, living life in top gear, so taking time out to do something just for ourselves has become more important than ever.



What's different about MakeKit?

All MakeKit DIY Craft Kits come with everything you need to make a professional job of a beautiful project. New Zealand products are sourced whenever possible, and I make a conscious effort to use as little plastic as possible.

All projects are things you'll actually want to 'put on show'. Really? Yep, they're not ugly and they're not pointless.


What else?

Does it takes forever to arrange a get-together with your girlfriends? How about a craft workshop at your house? You'll learn something new, make something awesome and catch up with everyone at once.

Or you're wondering what on earth to do for that upcoming birthday party? How about someone comes along to entertain and teach the kids a craft for a few hours, pack up any crafty mess and leave you with a cup of tea in your hand and a crowd of happy kids?


What now?

Time to stop clicking and get making! See the ever-growing range of gorgeous DIY craft projects for adults and kids, book in some time with your friends or sort out that fun birthday party. You're ready for some timeout.
