Inspiring Makers: Magpie Castle


Jinx Reithofer from Magpie Castle is a self-taught glass artisan. Her handcrafted kaleidoscopes, stained glass trinkets, crystals and pressed flower jewellery have a magical feel and playing with light is always a feature of her work. We have been inspired by Jinx’s mahi to make our own simple kaleidoscopes that create fun night-time lights.

Abbie and her whānau have been inspired again! Check out how they made their simple night-time kaleidoscopes in this PDF resource or to watch their instructional video click here.
