Many designer/makers have found that their usual opportunities to sell no longer exist.
#MakerSupportPledge is an offshoot from the #ArtistSupportPledge – an initiative set up by the Sussex-based artist Matthew Burrows, which is offering a self-sustaining lifeline to an ever-expanding number of fellow artists across the world. The idea is simple – makers post images of their work on Instagram that they are willing to sell up to the value of £200. For every £500 of work sold, they pledge to then spend £100 on the work of another maker using the hashtag.
This category lists all the items I am going to showcase on Instagram under the hashtag #MakerSupportPledge – you don’t have to be a maker to support this initiative. Anyone can support it and all purchases are very welcome!
