Craft and Design Online

If the words ‘Craft Fair’ conjure up an image of quaintly dressed teasel animals or wooden light pulls turned by Bob on his lathe in the shed at the bottom of the garden, it is time to allow a rekindling of your enthusiasm.

Finely Crafted is a new website which has been set up to help accomplished craft and design artists successfully reach the internet market. The site allows artists to reach a much wider audience with their products, with the ability to take online payments.

Bringing together a group of artists with varied talents in one place, the opportunity for exposure is increased by creating a stimulating comparison shopping environment.

Members of the public can access the website to purchase from an eclectic range of desirable objects including ceramics, glass, metal, textiles, wood and jewellery. The price range is as wide as the choice of objects, allowing anyone to find an unusual gift or decorative object within budget.

As well as displaying the work of a number of prize-winning craft artists, in the future we hope to engage with educational establishments and help new talents break into the market.

Current artists include Stephen Newby whose blown steel structures have been featured alongside the garden design work of Charlie Dimmock and Kim Wilde. Mixko is an exciting young design partnership who enjoy international success having been exhibited with both the British and German Design Councils, and won a Tokyo Designers Block prize amongst other accolades. A City & Guilds ‘Medal for Excellence’ has been awarded to Wayne George for his stunning contemporary furniture crafted from a wide range of timbers. The website features the work of many more acclaimed artists.
