Our Story

TMC Fox full side

Make Events was created as a result of a passion to see children across New Zealand being creative, learning new skills and having fun.

We have been running children’s craft workshops since 2012 when we started The Make Company, which is a Christchurch based craft business that teaches a wide range of exciting workshops to adults and children.

The business started when we spent time crafting at home and began to realise how difficult it is in our busy lives to  set aside time to be creative. Especially when it involves learning new skills or finding the time to acquire the necessary craft materials.

The same can be said for crafting with your children, which is why Make Events is all about bringing craft events to your community! If you are a business, school, children’s care facility or library that would like to us to run children’s craft workshops on your behalf in your local area, contact us today.

We can work with you to develop a themed programme, which is sure to ignite the curiosity and creativity of your group of children. Our aim is to keep sessions fun, teach children new skills and send them home with a creation they will be proud of!

We regularly test our ever-increasing collection of craft activities on friends and our own children before launching them as workshops at our store in Christchurch. We cherish their involvement in bringing our ideas to life and we are excited about the opportunity to share our passion with you.

Happy crafting!
