Make and Create was founded in 2018 by a GP called Zoe Watson.
Having used creativity as a way of managing stress and anxiety for years - she wanted to try and teach others that creativity can be used to quieten the mind, as a form of "meditation for the hands"
She creates carefully curated craft kits as well as running workshops across London and running virtual workshops online.
Zoe also makes a range of soothing essential oil candles and jewellery - all designed to encourage and support your mental health.
If you're interested in booking us for a workshop - for your team work night out or a private workshop with friends - drop us an email below!
Our eco values
A bit about how we make and package our products
All of the packaging we use to pack up your orders is plastic-free - we use cardboard boxes, paper tape and shredded paper or wood wool to protect your orders in transit.
Our candles are made from 100% eco-soy wax blended with high quality essential oils. They are vegan and cruelty-free. They are poured into glass containers which can be re-used to make further candles or re-purposed as a plant pot or storage container.
Our candle wicks are made from cotton for a clean, chemical free burn.
All of our candles are hand-poured in small batches ensuring that we don't have any dead stock.
Our jewellery is all handmade to order using brass - which is a sustainable metal to work with as many new brass products are made using recycled scrap.
Our macramé products and workshops are all made from recycled cotton macramé twine or recycled t-shirt yarn.
We are constantly thinking of new ways that we can make our business more sustainable and better for the environment.
