Mad Makers!

Welcome to Mad Makers! Are you mad and wanna make some stuff too? Come on in!

On the last Monday of every month the mad makers will bring you a new arts-and-crafts video tutorial via our Mad Covid youtube channel and Instagram. You’ll also find links to episodes further down on this page as they’re released, along with kit-lists for each tutorial.

They’re small projects which we hope will be financially accessible (if not free) and actually fun! We’ll also have episodes which don’t require any scissors or sharp objects, so folks in hospital can join in too.

Sometimes we’ll adapt projects from art therapy, sometimes we’re inspired by other creators and sometimes a totally bonkers idea appears out of nowhere! Who knows what’ll happen.

If you join in with any our mad makes and would like to share your crafts, please send pictures to us at and we’ll display them in our online gallery- we’d love the see them! You can also use #MadMakers and @MadCovid on social media to make sure we can find you!

If you have ideas for craft projects, or would like to host an episode, please get in contact via email at
