When we ask anyone what Makelight means to them, it all comes down to two words: inspiration and community.

Seeing your peers turn their creativity into a living is inspiring. But it can be frustrating to know you have that within you too, but lack the knowledge or tools to share your passion with the world.

That's where Makelight comes in! We're a supportive community of people just like you. And through our online courses and tools we'll help you launch, promote and grow your business or project


Kick off your 2017 with a boost of inspiration!


With a Makelight membership you can join our subscriber-only courses all year round.

You'll get access to all the inspiration, tools and resources to grow your following, build your business, or take beautiful photographs to communicate what you do with the world.



What's new for February

The Makelight Planner

A workbook to help you grow and develop throughout 2017.

We've distilled down into a simple series of exercises much of how we've built and run Makelight. It's based on our experiences setting up and running a wide variety of projects over the years – a blog, a record label, a design agency, a family!

The Makelight Planner is our way of sharing some of the processes we've learnt to keep work feeling achievable and enjoyable with our busy, modern lives.


Love for the Makelight experience

Here are some kind words that past Makelight attendees have shared about their Makelight experience.


I hope you'll join me and Stef for the full Makelight experience now that you've had a taste of it. Looking forward to welcoming you to the group! Emily xo
