Maker Crate is a monthly craft box dedicated to the discovery of new art and design tools to help turn artistic visions into design realities.
Whether you’re a new crafter or an experienced maker, each crate is designed to introduce fresh techniques and draw inspiration from real designs so that makers can take pride in a finished project that’s both fun and functional.
The Arts & Crafts subscription for ALL ages! Maker Crate is dedicated to helping kids (and kids at heart) discover new art and design tools and gain the creative confidence to turn their artistic visions into design realities. From macrame hangers to terrazzo trays, they’ll take pride in making something fun — and functional. Maker Crate will help them build creative confidence to turn artistic visions into design realities. From creating a macrame plant hanger and clay bowls to crafting a punch-needle pillow to spruce up a room, or a terrazzo-style tray to store essentials — every crate includes projects that are both imaginative and functional.
Each crate introduces a new technique, opening the doors for makers to continue creating all by themselves — long after they’ve completed the projects in each crate. Plus, they’ll get a look at the real-world applications and the history behind each art form or design technique. Whether you are 14 or 104 years old, a first-time crafter or an experienced maker, each crate is a chance to experiment, draw inspiration and make something to treasure or give to someone special.
Every Maker Crate includes:
- Hands-On Projects Create amazing designs that are uniquely you — and useful, too!
- High-Quality Materials All the supplies to bring your vision to life
- Creative Learning Easy-to-follow video instructions and inspiration
- New Crafts & Techniques Lifelong skills to keep making and designing
Here are some sample crates from Maker Crate:
Learn to create textured designs with loops of yarn, then use your textile techniques to craft a cozy, colorful pillow. Along the way, experiment with dimension, negative space, and other visual elements.
Create a pair of perfect (and practical!) plant hangers. Start by designing a macrame keychain to learn knotting. Then craft two macrame hangers. Finish off by sculpting, decorating, and customizing clay pots for your hangers.
