Certain success for Knot Shore
With a nod to his love of surfing, Wilder created the cleverly branded “Knot Shore”. Encouraged by his mum, the business offered tie-die apparel which appealed to a carefree adolescent market.
The product, the business name, and the customers were brilliantly aligned and “Knot Shore” was successfully launched in August 2017 at the Make Place Market. Since then Wilder and his mum have appeared at several markets around the Mandurah/Rockingham region and the business continues with a Facebook page and Instagram following.
You can see Wilder promoting his wares in the local newspaper “The Mandurah Mail”.
Love from our teachers
"The program brought small business and financial management to the forefront of our students minds. It really opened their eyes to the ‘real world’ and that money does not just magically appear. It put things into perspective and their initiatives displayed at the Market stall day really showed the learning they gained from the program.
The Year 5 students are already talking about it!"
Melanie Buller, Principal SHHP 2019
"I was absolutely blown away by how successful the night was. The students did an amazing job and I am so proud of them. I haven’t done the final count, but I won’t be surprised if between them they have raised over $2000 in profit! And it’s not over! I have a meeting with our P&F representatives tomorrow to see if we can support them with their Christmas stall."

Parents of Kidpreneurs - Kat, mum of Ash
How do parents feel about their kids running businesses? We are deeply curious about this at Maker Kids, so we ask the parents we meet regularly. As many of you know, Ash of Beauty From Ash's Products is one of our most successful kidpreneurs. In this video, we asked her mum, the marvellous Ezer Eve, what it's like. Hope you enjoy it 🙂Posted by Maker Kids Club on Monday, June 26, 2017
