"The FormBox is fast to set up and really easy to use. For children participating in my workshop it’s always
magical to see their (sometimes rough) clay mold,
being formed into a (comical, beautiful, tough, etc) plastic gargoyle. Works every time!"
Luke Wiehink, Netherlands

Everything You Need to Get Started

Every FormBox comes with 40 free sheets, 1kg of casting material, three starter templates and a universal vacuum adaptor to ensure you get making straight away.

Your Classroom

What can you teach with FormBox?

Make Complicated Ideas Tangible

When ideas from maths and science are applied to making - children engage with theory in a more direct way. This deepens their understanding and aids their retention and engagement.

Teach Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Children can use the FormBox to quickly create batches of professional products with almost no training. Once they start building their own businesses at school who knows where that will take them.

Build Self-Confidence

When students feel empowered to create their own things they realize their innate creative power. This builds confidence in themselves and their abilities.

Encourage Collaboration

Creating together is more powerful than working alone. Working on collaborative making projects helps children learn what it means to be a part of a team.

Increase Motivation

When children realise that they have the ability to make their ideas real they learn the invaluable skill of ‘sticking with it’.

Explore Basic Design and Manufacturing Principles

The FormBox is a minature version of a giant mass manufacturing process. With it you can expose students to the whole product creation process all the way through from design to manufacture.
