Comprehensive lessons. Great online support through FB live Q&A. Wonderful tools!! Love this community!

CoLee Wilkinson

I'm new to Makelight, but I have gotten so much out of the first 3 lessons of Bloom. I've been frustrated and a bit overwhelmed about how to approach branding. I now feel in control of the task - it is just what I needed!

Based on our standard prices for one-off courses, our monthly membership offer is a saving of $997.

Excited? We are! This year we're going to be putting all of our efforts into making Makelight the most positive and supportive online network for creators, makers and doers!

We would love to have you with us as a member and hope you'll be joining us this month.
