Like what you see on our Facebook and would like to buy something? Heard about our MiniMakers workshops and wanted to get a kit or project?
Although the online Store is now live, populating it organically with our products could take some time – so please bear with us!
Within The Wellington Makerspace we do our best to promote learning and activities which help grow New Zealand and this follows through into our products, so we will guarantee:
1) All our products will be made by us – in house- in New Zealand or by our friends locally in a Noho/Marae space, Makerspace or other local small business. However we may sometimes send work to other places in New Zealand to reduce transport costs and as we’re very realistic in how we operate – sometimes components will have to brought in from overseas to make everything affordable. With that in mind though, we will endeavor to keep as much manufacturing in New Zealand as is practicable.
2) We love the environment, [most] humans and all animals – and we always aim for the waste reduced, environmental and most sustainable option where we can. So that means No animal testing and FSC approved timber all the way in our products – However, we do thoroughly support the testing of all our MiniMakers products on live children.
3) Packaging – We will always choose sustainable and/or recycled packaging i.e. Radiata-pine paper/cardboard boxes, wood-wool fillers and rubber reusable stamps rather than printed labels. We like the look anyway and we hope you will too.
4) Feedback – You are our whole point of Our being here – so please feel free to send us your suggestions, comments, rants or praise – it’ll help us to get it right!
And last but not least – please remember that any products sold will help us generate income that will reduce the costs of our outreach, mini-makers and community programmes. Keep watching our social media for updates and coming-soon announcements.
