Welcome to Chiswick Creatives Online and our very first blog post! After much planning and (distanced) collaboration we’re delighted to launch our website. Thank you so much for dropping by – we’re incredibly excited to introduce you to our brand new online “home”.
A chance to meet your local artists and makers
With Chiswick Creatives Online we deliberately set out to create an online destination that’s much more than just a showcase for our work. The success of our Makers’ Markets in Chiswick taught us that the local community jumped at the chance to browse and buy original, high quality, contemporary art and craft. But we also learned how much our visitors appreciated the opportunity to meet the people behind the work and chat with us about our inspirations, processes and materials. And the feeling was mutual – this was a real highlight for us too.
As you know, many local markets and events have been cancelled this year due to the Covid crisis and future plans remain uncertain. So we set out to recreate the spirit of the Makers’ Market experience for you (and ourselves) with this website.
Take the tour of Chiswick Creatives Online
Visit our About page to learn more about how Chiswick Creatives began, who we are and what we do. You’ll also find ways that you can support us (it doesn’t always involve buying something!).
Browse the Makers’ Marketplace to learn more about each artist or maker and to see our latest work. From here you can click through to our individual websites to shop online, commission bespoke items and contact us with enquiries. We’d also love it if you just wanted to say hello! Please don’t be shy about getting in touch – we’re always delighted to hear from you.
And finally, head to our blog to go behind the scenes with our artist and makers, find out what’s inspiring us and see what’s on our workbench or easel. We also bring you news about local events, new Chiswick Creatives projects and exclusive offers for our subscribers.
Coming soon from Chiswick Creatives Online
We know for some of you it’s still a little early for the “C” word. For others, though, the festive season is already firmly on the to-do list. We hope to solve at least some of your gift-buying dilemmas, so we’re busy working on a couple of exciting ideas including a Chiswick Creatives Christmas Shopping Guide. We’ll be bringing you all the best sellers from last year’s Pop-Up Christmas Maker’s Market plus a range of brand new products too. This seasonal shopping guide will launch in a few weeks’ time, so do stay tuned. To keep in touch with all our latest news you can follow us on social media and also subscribe to our mailing list (we promise not to bombard you with emails).
Many thanks again for visiting. We’re still very much a work in progress but we hope you like what we’ve done so far. Please do leave comments below – we’d love to hear what you think.
