What is a Maker?

Humans by nature are makers. Using our hand’s, we combine the art of creating with storytelling.


A Capel Trail Maker is anyone who is making a product by hand, for example, paintings, craft, produce, woodwork, metalwork, inventions, prototypes, books and music.

"The interest, involvement and engagement of the whole community made this year's CMT one of the most positive weekends for the region that I can remember, as well as being the most beneficial to me as a participating artisan. Many hidden artistic talents in the Shire came to light, along with the better known. It brought both local residents and visitors from further afield, and all the interaction I had with those visiting the venue where I was exhibiting was extremely positive, even joyous at times.” Janet Wells 2021 Trail
