About Us

We have been providing creative solutions to clients around the world,
for over 20 years across multiple industries.

Our History

Dan Cook is a patented innovator who has worked his way across the world in the entertainment industry since 1995 to light bands, invent widgets, manage productions and narrowly avoided getting shot by Colonel Gaddafi’s personal guards. Over the years Dan has gathered wide-ranging experience from art installations and electronics design through to technical systems design for multi-million dollar state-of-the-art venues. In recent years Dan has delivered diverse workshops and talks for a wide variety of organisations such as Queensland University of Technology, Griffith University, State Library of Queensland, PLASA (uk) and Entech, not to mention dozens of schools and educational organistions.

Our Vision

Over the years we’ve noticed that people are becoming more and more disconnected from how things work. Our children are losing their fine motor skills from lack of hands-on-creating, and once common household repairs tasks are now the domain of professionals. Maker Workshop aims to change this. We want our kids to realise their creative potential. We want people to question if a broken object can be reused, recycled or repurposed. We want to create a nation of Makers; Questioners of consumerism; Embracers of failure and experimentation.
