What do YOU make?

Right now I am totally into up-cycling and re-imagining "junk" to create new playthings for kids. Junktopia is a fantastical character-based maker society where an entire world has been re-invented out of junk, intended to inspire the maker to use their imaginations to create their own play environment and empower them to make things out of ordinary items. Check it out: I use a combination of up-cycled junk, craft supplies, clock parts (has a steampunk vibe), findings, metal, laser engraved parts and characters.

What do you WANT to make?

Arts and crafts for kids, Steampunk, fashion, jewelry, soldering, metalworking, woodworking, simple electronics and motorized things....

Do you want to SHARE what you make with others?

Yes!!! I would love to share Project Junktopia!

Do you want to LEARN how to make with others?

Yes, would love that too!


Hi, I'm Janet Schriever. My background is in toy design, fashion, and fine art. I am currently working on a maker project called Project Junktopia.
