Maker store + studio is now permanently closed

To our dear community, we are sad to announce that maker store & studio is permanently closed. We can not even begin to extend our deepest gratitude to you - our community & customers - for all your support over the past four years. From early days in our Adamstown store to our dream space in Newcastle West, none of it would have been possible without you. Sometimes life throws challenges and you have to eb with the flow. We believe the universe brought us together at the perfect time and now it is time for us to move on and focus on our individual pursuits. Maker store proved to be so much more than a space to connect the maker with the conscious consumer, it was an incubator for deep connection, unforgettable memories, lasting friendships and dreaming big. A place to talk openly, a place to raise our babies (human and fur), a place to laugh so much we could cry (Monday meetings often doubled as group therapy sessions) and at times, it was a place to make hard decisions. We will miss seeing all of you and can not thank you all enough for trusting our vision, our product offerings, attending our talks, markets & gallery openings. We hope you enjoyed our store as much as we did curating and nurturing it. The feeling is bittersweet for sure, but the future is bright.

And don’t worry this is not the end of all  making. Follow us all individually on our different paths. @studiumessentials, @yuni___, @val.ent.een, @hallethelable, @made.by_a

Sending love,
