Australian Handmade Artisan News

Here’s some of the latest and most informative we have sourced from around the digital world.  First of all we recently had an illuminating chat with David, who works in a gallery but still finds the time to create his own handmade artworks.  You can read more here.

David is a printmaker who specialises in blokey images like trains, ships and other imagery not necessarily catered for in the handmade scene. This is an interesting counterpoint to the usual array of little twitter-like birds and cute motifs that are commonplace across handmade markets. And for David, this works as his genuine interest is what sets him apart from the rest of the crowd.

Everyone I talk to at the markets has her own story about getting found in the digital space.  It seems the tried and tested routes are using social media – and the drift away from facebook towards pinterest is noteworthy – and consistent appearances at markets as a stallholder.  Whilst these methods are effective, people are also looking for alternative ways of being found online, and listing in a niche directory is high on the list.  You can join the Australian Stallholder Directory here.
