Creative Hands Foundation By Creative Hands Foundation

We are a group of local women who love creating beautiful, exciting handmade items. We're at the start of our journey turning our passion into arts and craft businesses.

Ardwick Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We all met when we took part in a project run by a local charity called Creative Hands Foundation to learn how to set up and run a mini enterprise in arts and crafts. Now it's finished we're trying to put all what we've learnt into practice. We still meet once a month and support each other to stay motivated. There are many challenges when you're working on your own so we've decided to do something collectively. It's important to showcase our work and let as many people as possible know what we do.

What we'll deliver:

  • create unique handmade arts and crafts products for our showcase
  • hire Space 2 in the Manchester Craft and Design Centre to showcase and promote our work

Why it's a great idea:

Do you love creating or would you like to own beautiful unique crafts - from jewellery to lampshades? There are many challenges to running a creative business, some of us have young families, some of us are working in other jobs but we have a common goal to continue creating handmade art and crafts. Before we all met on the course we were making and giving our creations away to family and friends. We didn't feel confident or think that we could start a business but now we have started taking small steps along our journey. Please join us in this campaign.

Steps to get it done:

  • with YOU to help us
  • create our individual profiles
  • plan a fantastic inspiring exhibition with our crafts
  • plan how we will promote to a wider audience
