Welcome.

Welcome to Maker’s Dozen

Maker’s Dozen™ is an independent Canadian maker studio, run by Kate and Neil from their log cabin in Quinte West. The Maker’s Dozen motto: Try. Learn. Share. Repeat.

Maker’s Dozen “makes” in many ways and builds bridges between communities that are often treated as separate. Urban and rural, technology and art, expert and novice, reason and wonder.

Our work is a practice in encouraging ourselves and others to make the leap from consumer to maker: to be curious and full participants in the world around us.

We forage for and paint with wild inks; make video games and apps; needlefelt; teach introductory robotics; grow, preserve and ferment food; learn about tracks, scat and wild critters; and DIY just about everything we can. Because… D-I-Why Not?
