At MAKE, we believe that everybody is an artist. Art is a powerful tool that helps us to understand and express ourselves better in a way that is not always possible through words. MAKE helps you navigate your feelings and make sense of the world through art and guided reflection. With every box you receive, we learn more about you and personalise your boxes further, tailoring the experience to your personality and interests. Through time and with Machine Learning we will be able to help you uncover undiscovered skills.
Why this particular box?
Based on the results of your pre-assessment, we've chosen this box.
The materials contained in your MAKER BOX fall into the KINAESTHETIC / SENSORY category.
These boxes inspire the release and expression of energy through movement and engagement with the art materials. They build our connection with the body through stimulating the physical senses with little cognitive involvement. This sensory engagement helps calm thoughts & emotions by focusing on the rhythm and sensations on the body.
There are three subcategories of MAKER boxes
- The intensity of sensory stimulation
- The amount of physical engagement with the art materials
- The control over the creative process
What is inside your MAKER box?
- 1 tool (to mould, shape and/or cut)
- materials to sculpt
- wires (to give structure to your creation)
- A treat from MAKE! Inside your box, you will find a collectible emotion card. Collect it to get back at it or use it as inspiration for your artwork. You decide.
Let's get started!
This is your experience. We provide a structure and guidance but you can always get creative and change the order! We divided the experience into three different audios. The whole experience will take a minimum of 20 minutes and it can take as long as you want.
Between each audio, you have a chance to sculpt or you can do so while listening to the audio. You can sculpt by building on each previous creation, the final product will be a combination of all the different ideas that you came across during the 3 audios (basically what some artists and musicians call a Gesamtkunstwerk or a “Total Work of Art”)
When you’re ready, start the first audio.

Please hit this link to record your process and self-reflect on the activity. Self-reflection is fundamental for building on your experiences. It might be weird at first, but through time you will do it more naturally.
We would love to see your creation. Tag @make.wellbeing on Instagram with the hashtag #beamaker
