Woodworking & Makerspace for Kids
Make&Meld inspires imagination, hand skills and creativity for kids of all ages!
Two local Brisbane Mums have come together to establish Make&Meld, a fun-filled creative space for kids located in the inner-city suburb of Yeronga.
Tinker Fun for Little Ones (2 to 5 years)
Wednesdays 9.30-11.30am (Weekly – Book Online)
A makerspace for little kids! Woodwork, tinkering, loose parts play, sewing and more! A different Maker Theme each week!
Make&Meld provides a creative, hands-on learning experience for little learners by providing materials, tools and guidance as they explore, play and develop their fine and gross motor skills while using real tools!
Tea and coffee facilities are available, with a comfortable seating and play area for younger siblings. This is a comfortable place for kids and their carers to relax and play.
Woodwork’s Cool! (6 to 13 years)
Wednesdays 3.30-5.00pm (10 Week Term Program)
Brisbane’s woodwork school for kids! Make&Meld has designed a woodworking program for kids which aims to cultivate a sense of pride in learning new skills while also providing opportunities for their growth both physically and mentally.
Children start at level 1 for each assessable skill and slowly develop their skills in order to progress to the next level. This means your child can start at any age and they will be guided as required. This is an extracurricular activity with a difference!
Design’s Cool! (6 to 13 years)
Thursdays 3.30-5.00pm (10 Week Term Program)
Have your kids ever dreamed of being a designer or inventor? Encourage them to build on their creative skills by enrolling them in Make&Meld’s unique design school program! This program is aimed at those kids who love to rummage through the recycling bin, or who love pulling things apart to see how they work.
Kids explore a wide range of materials, tools and other resources including woodworking tools and sewing machines and as they are guided through a range of design challenges.
Maker Fun Fridays (For kids of all ages)
Fridays 3.30-5.00pm (Weekly Workshop Sessions)
A new guided project every week! Kids use a range of tools and materials to build the weekly project. Projects can range from wooden planters to vinyl suitcases.
Check out the Calendar of Projects on Make&Meld’s website for a list of upcoming projects.
Maker/Craft Birthday Parties
Make&Meld runs fun, one-of-a-kind, Maker/Craft Birthday Parties that engage kids and take the fuss out of party prep! Choose from unique maker activities including woodwork projects, clay jewellery, sewing and more!
School Holiday Workshops
Make&Meld provides engaging school holiday workshops for kids of all ages. Get your kids using real tools over the holidays as they make fantastic projects including easels, bike jumps, dolls houses and wooden toy car garages.
All workshops are led by dedicated professionals who will safely guide your kids through the use of saws, hammers, hand drills and other hand tools.
“My daughter had her birthday party here on the weekend. What a wonderful experience. The girls were all so engaged, busily chatting and making. The pieces were just the right level of challenge for them. Thanks to Emily and Helen, it was the most stress free, successful party I have ever held.” – Clare Tee (parent of birthday girl)
“The birthday boy and his friends had an absolute ball. I’ve had lots of the parents say what a cool and fun party it was, the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves.” – Anna, parent of 4yr old Alexander
“My children love going to Make & Meld. So far they have made a scooter board, a wooden shelf, a secret book, a money box, a wooden box, a mailbox, a robot/animal, a boat, a car… The finished product always looks amazing – and my girls are so proud of their work. They love that they have made something, and that they’ve been able to customise it to their design. Helen and Emily are great teachers – they provide clear instructions and guidance while letting the children try themselves. My kids are definitely going to have better DIY skills than I do! I love that they are able to use real tools safely. Everything about Make & Meld is great – it’s a locally owned business, with passionate engaged staff, it’s structured and creative at the same time, there’s no rush, they aim to use sustainable materials, and the children are learning something while having so much fun.” – AG, 2020
