This collection does not have any deviations yet!

Newest Members

Apologies for the quietness of the boards, the same as everyone else life has gotten a little busy, but I am still around! I enjoy seeing the deviations that submitted to the group gallery.

I thought I would simply pose a question to you all, the New Year is just around the corner and I would love to know what goals you have for the year. Is it doing your first craftshow? Trying to get work into a gallery/shop.

For me, it's pushing my business into being an actual business and not a hobby. Big step, and a slightly scary one but I am keen for the challenge.

So over to you!

Best wishes

Mission Statement

UK Handmade is a design led online magazine committed to showcasing and promoting the best creative talent the UK has to offer. The term 'handmade' is now an indicator of quality, care and professionalism that is second to none and something we at UK Handmade wish to encourage and celebrate. Artists and designers from across all of the art disciplines have a place here including photography, textiles, jewellery, fashion, art and design.

In a time when people are realising the importance of spending quality time with the family, small businesses are being started from the kitchen table and becoming an integral part of our overall lifestyle. We want to bring back the skills of our grandparents, grow vegetables with our children, to make do and mend and return to an ideology that previous generations took for granted.

But we are realists too; in order to live like this in today’s world we need to be financially self-sufficient. An increasing number of online selling venues are allowing makers and designers to sell their goods with very little set up costs and as a result handmade items are not only experiencing a renaissance but a whole new community of small businesses are working together to promote and support the handmade movement.

UK Handmade is at the heart of the movement, providing advice and resources to it's members as well as collaborating and connecting with businesses to further the handmade cause for the benefit of all through the online magazine, website and forum.

Hello, everyone! 
Let's make it short and sweet: are there any good plushie tutorials out there? Like, the basics, from pattern to stuffing. Anything, really.

Longer story: I really want to make a little doll of Fiona the Human (Adventure Time genderbent) for my friend. I'm not sure what I want the size to be - I was originally thinking hand-sized, but if bigger is easier? then I'm all for it!

Thank you for reading! :dummy:

I know i may be wasting my time, but i urge everyone to read this note about my experience with the system of the UK Job Centres and the truth behind the way it treats young people: 

It's important we make a big awareness of this situation before others fall victim.

Sorry for the delay, I am sure you might have already worked it out, but if you haven't when you upload a piece of artwork to your own gallery there is a button that says 'gallery and group options'.

Select it and there will be an option to add it to UK Handmade, this will then give you a further option to add it to a gallery.

Hope this helps!
