#March Meet The Maker

#MarchMeetTheMaker 2021


Back again

Joanne Hawker's #MarchMeetTheMaker is back in 2021 for another month long challenge and strives to be bigger and better than before! Prepare yourself for a month of creative posting on Instagram, making new friends and discovering an incredible amount of new talent to follow. But most of all, prepare yourself for a month of fun and telling the world about YOU and what you make.

2021 see's the addition of new daily prompts. These were inspired by new ideas, discoveries and current trends. Some have even been suggested by you - the Maker Community itself.

Introduce yourself and your brand to the world, let people in behind the scenes of how and where you work and show everyone the various different aspects of running a small creative business! There's something for everyone!

New daily posts

Plan with me

The best way to successfully complete this challenge, and to avoid any stress, is to plan ahead! That way you know what you're doing and when. This helps to prevent panic posting!

Download and print your free planning sheet (with space to jot down your ideas) from the planner page to help you prepare, plan ahead and to successfully complete the challenge! 

2021 marks the first ever #MarchMeetTheMaker Maker Directory! Over in the directory you will find 9 different categories of makers! In those sections you will find a variety of talented designers and makers, all of whom run a small creative business! 

Grab yourself a cuppa, pop over, and have a around look around! Discover new to makers from all around the world to support and follow!
