Makers Escape 2018

Makers Escape - Montville 2018


SOLD OUT for 2018

The demand for places was so high that the web server crashed! We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response. So after a night of frustration, perseverance and dogged determination, a bunch of fearless makers managed to secure their spots at the weekend event. 

Thank you, thank you for your enthusiasm, support and patience.

We will be running more events such as this – so if you missed out we hope to see you at another one in the future.




Before completing the registration for this event please read all the information carefully. Make sure you have visited these pages:




It’s a good idea to make a note of the accommodation you would like and the workshops you’d like to attend before you start completing the registration form. Please understand that when you register for this event you are coming to an event rather than a series of workshops. We look at the whole of Makers Escape as a very special time for making new friends, for escaping the “every day”, building a community, creating wonderful things and developing new skills.


Cost of Makers Escape

The cost is made up of two components:

  1. The Workshop Program (all workshops, all meals, all activities) for $849*. 
  2. Accommodation (prices for a variety of accommodation options are shown on the Accommodation page).

*  A reduction of $50 per session is given for each session that you choose to work on your own project.

The total cost is determined by the choices you make when you register. Due to the nature of the event where there are so many variables (tutor availability, workshop size limits, venue restrictions, accommodation restrictions, and so on) we cannot guarantee that you will be able to make changes once the registration form has been completed.

Example of cost of Makers Escape 2018

  • The Workshop Program is $849.00 (all workshops, all meals, all activities)
  • You choose Accommodation Option D – Twin Share for $240.00
  • You choose to work on your own project for one of the workshop sessions – so a reduction of $50.00
  • Total price = 849.00 + 240.00 – 50.00 = 1039.00
  • Deposit payable when you register is $500.00
  • Balance payable in late March is $539.00



In summary, when registering you be asked to:

  • Choose your accommodation option by clicking on the ” + ” symbol of your choice. 
  • Choose your workshop preferences for each of the five workshop sessions
  • Pay a deposit of $500.00

A confirmation of your workshop program and your accommodation choice will be emailed to you by the end of February 2018.

The balance of the package price will be payable in the last week of March 2018. This will be invoiced to you separately. Your place at Makers Escape will be confirmed once the deposit and the balance has been paid in full.
