About

We are a collective of creative professionals who have banded together to form the Makers Society. Each bringing their own set of skills and hobbies, from graphic design to coding, floristry to sewing, baking to photography and styling, we love to share our knowledge with others and learn new skills through our blog and through our classes.

We create our own content and take our own photographs, so if you intend on re-posting our content, please reference it and link back to our site. We’ve taken the time to create our posts, so please appreciate that!
