More of What We Do…

We seek out and create opportunities for artists to exhibit, sell and teach, and support them with promotion and business development. This means they have more time to focus on what they do best…making! 

The craft revival is here to stay. We know that more and more people are looking to shop small and support local artisan businesses. Our directory of contemporary artists & makers provides a curated online platform for those who are looking for the best quality craftsmanship. No more trawling through huge marketplace websites! They say that when you buy from a small business an ‘actual person does a little happy dance’ and it’s true! That’s why we’re passionate about promoting and supporting our local artists – so that we can join in the dance too!
