From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The maker movement has become very popular and people everywhere are embracing the fun that making can bring. With the Maker Night, we bring the maker movement to you at a local restaurant or bar. At each event, you decorate and then assemble and take home a laser-cut kinetic art project. We are completely unique, the projects were invented and created by us, and the experience lets you step outside the norm and do something completely different.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We believe that more people need to make things and become part of the Maker Movement, but many people don’t know where to start and think they don’t have the skills. With the Maker Night, we wanted to let everyone's inner maker out by using simple techniques that we all know and then combining that with well designed kinetic art to build something beautiful and completely unique. We wanted projects that all ages could enjoy and would open up the creativity of making to everyone.
What do you love most about your job?
We’ve been designing and creating kinetic art in finished and kit form for several years. We love watching the creativity that each maker applies as they decorate the wooden parts of their project. Each person creates an amazingly unique piece of art and we are always delighted by what they've created. It’s wonderful to see those same people realise that they really are makers.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
This is the most fun I have had at an art event. It is unique and fun. I’m sure I’ll be back.
