Join Us

Would you like to be a part of madebyhandonline.com? There are different ways you can join us to promote your own work, as well as help champion British Contemporary Craft.  

Are you a Maker?

Apply to sell with us...

If you'd like to join our community of selected makers we'd love to hear from you. We use a selection panel to help us curate our website. Selected makers sell through our website and we also work like agents for them, promoting their businesses to the press and craft loving audiences, as well as seeking out opportunities for them and providing business support for those who'd like it.

We put a call out for makers to join us at different times of the year and we're now open to applications across all categories.

We're keen to keep our site at a manageable size for all, so spaces are limited.  If you'd like to find out about joining please follow this link to our application form where you can find information about our site and community and you can also send us and our panel details about your practice and images of your work. 

Please note, we do not sell beauty products, food, candles, paintings or photography.

Join our National Makers Directory...

Our National Makers Directory is open to any UK based maker of Contemporary Craft. The Directory is within our Resources section and does not involve selling work with us (unless you are one of our selected makers). It's a great way to promote your skills and your work and to help people find you. This Directory is open to any UK-based maker - we do not have a selection process for this, however we reserve the right to decline requests for listings if deemed unsuitable or if we feel we do not have the right audience for you. Please see our Directory Ts&Cs at the bottom of this page. Please note, we don't list beauty products, food, candles, fine art, drawings or photography.

You can have a standard text-only listing for free, or a premium listing for a one-off fee of £25.

A Standard Listing:

  • Up to 50 words description of the Maker’s work.
