Putting makers and artists in touch with their customers

The Makers Directory has launched with its first 100 listings of creatives, ranging from blacksmiths and milliners to painters and stone carvers, the new website provides a one-stop searchable directory of makers in this artistic part of Sussex.

The mission of The Makers Directory is to encourage people to support, value and buy from local makers and artists. You can use the website to search for the perfect hand-crafted gift, commission work or get creative and find someone to teach you a new skill. The directory is easy to use, with a tagging system which enables users to search by discipline, location and service.

Councillor David Tutt, Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, said: “Businesses large and small have suffered greatly during the pandemic and I’ve been determined throughout to provide as much council help and support to them as possible. This website is a great idea and helps put makers and artists directly in touch with new customers.”

EDC is encouraging additional artists and makers to become listed for free – as long as they live or work in the Eastbourne Borough. If you, or anyone you know is interested, register online at themakersdirectory.co.uk. Be part of The Makers Directory and reach new audiences of buyers, collectors and fellow makers.

The Makers Directory is a not-for-profit endeavour, started by Charlotte Parsons and Corina Buckwell, fired by their passion to connect buyers directly with local makers. It has been funded by Eastbourne Borough Council as part of their response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
