The Maker’s Collective is a Creative Hub for makers, side-hustler’s and entrepreneurs.

Here you can connect with like-minded, multi-disciplinary, creative professionals, give and receive peer-to-peer support and business mentorship and gain access to personal and professional development resources needed, while on the pursuit of building a creative life and business you love.

Need some inspiration? Check out our Podcast where we feature successful creative entrepreneurs, sharing how they’ve navigated the entrepreneurial waters and built their businesses. We also have a private community Facebook Page where you can connect with others like you who have big dreams, and the knowledge and skills to support you.
