Maker Mentor and Coach

We offer coaching and mentoring to empower makers to appreciate their unique value, gain clarity, build in confidence and banish the power that societies limiting beliefs of creatives have over the entrepreneurial journey of a maker. Both coaching and mentoring is conducted by founder Jacqui Rudd, who is a qualified coach with a postgraduate certificate in coaching with Goldsmiths UoL and soon to be ILM accredited. 

The Maker Edit is committed to making their services as affordable as possible to support a thriving future for craft which is accessible to as many designers, makers and artists as we can reach. This is why our one to one coaching has a variety of payment plans available and our mentoring programme is free with an application process for the limited spaces.

The Maker Edit 2021 Mentoring Programme launching in December 2020, more details and application coming soon.

121 coaching for makers available now! Schedule a free discovery call with Jacqui to see if coaching is right for you and how we can work together using the calendar below.


“I worked with Jacqui over 6 sessions and her support and guidance came at a time of upheaval in my professional and personal life, exacerbated by turning 30. I am by nature quite self-reflective, but with Jacqui’s guidance, I realised that this is a necessary process for self-development, and not just self-indulgent. 

I think the chance to ‘pause’ whilst working full time, having a busy social life and living in London was a welcome relief and something that I did not realise I needed until I was working with Jacqui. Jacqui is a great listener, holds you to account for what you said you would do, and a brilliant coach to have had.”
