Anne & Vicki
founders of MAKE Creative Workshops
Hello, we are
MAKE is all about finding some time out of your busy life to design, MAKE and create whether you are 3 or 73! Our creative workshops will provide you with a community of like minded individuals to learn new skills; crafting original products hand-made by yourself.
We’ve always been passionate about teaching and learning, and through MAKE we are here to bring relevant modern crafts to people of all ages.
Even though we live in different cities we are excitedly working together to develop MAKE. We aim to offer a range of workshops for both adults and children that are fun and relaxed; giving people the opportunity to unleash their creativity and MAKE products that are thoughtful, on trend and unique.
Anne and Vicki
I’m Anne, I’ve been living in Bristol for almost 20 years and love having the vibrant creative city on my door step. I have 4 children who keep me busy and have been teaching for over 10 years.
I left my secondary school design teaching job after 10 years in 2017 to set up my other business Bean Stork. I am an antenatal teacher and baby massage instructor and really enjoying supporting expectant and new parents on their parenting journey.
I missed teaching people to design and make products which is why I came to create MAKE. After teaching with Vicki for 5 years it seemed only right for us to start making MAKE happen, bringing our experience of teaching creative subjects together and launching MAKE Creative Workshops in our cities.
I’m Vicki, Making a giant leap from classroom teacher to co-founder of MAKE creative workshops over the course of 2019 has been a breath of fresh air.
I love everything to do with Design and Technology and MAKE is an entirely new refreshing adventure, where I get to meet new people everyday, and inspire a new making community, working everyday in different locations making new and different things.
Lots of people ask me why I left a solid career in teaching to start MAKE, I wanted to carve out a career where I have the flexibility to pick my kids up from school, attend their sports day but still get to do what I love.
Teaching is still my job for life but I’ve got the best of both worlds now, I think!
