We love making
…not just making but making do – using the stuff we have, to make something new. makedo has emerged from a group of people who seek to inspire social change through playful creativity. We want people to see and inject new value into things that might otherwise be regarded as waste. Our aim is to encourage people to use their imagination and see the creative possibilities in the re-use of everyday materials around them. Through this process we can redefine what’s considered waste. makedo is about creativity, sustainability, imagination, community and play.
The way of makedo
Coincidence or not? ‘Do’ translates to ‘Way’ in Japanese. Not just any old way but The Way. At makedo, we have A Way. It’s simple, circular and open-ended. You can start and end at any point. So without getting all martial arts on your making, get enlightened by the makedo. FIND materials by seeing new value in the things around you. CREATE just about anything using the simple makedo parts. PLAY because interaction breathes life into your creations. SHARE your creation with a community of makers. INSPIRE and get inspired in our online creation galleries.
