Makers.org.nz is the online focus point for those making ‘stuff’ in New Zealand. New Zealand is filled with local talent – tinkerers, makers, crafters, creators. This site is intended to showcase their work. To share projects people are working on, to help facilitate discussions and collaboration between those making and those looking to make.

We’re constantly working to answer the questions of how to make the maker movement in NZ thrive and developing a strategy to enable others to get onboard and contribute.
One of the goals of MoNZ is to enable others to set up makerspaces. Doing what we can to help the network grow and remain sustainable. Providing support, information and networking opportunities.
We use maker project to learn more about how we can better serve the local maker movement. This ensures that it’s fun for us and relevant for us all!
