Inspired by African Cartel’s Robot Artists short film we’ve decided to start a sister blog to help give some exposure to our local artisans. Here we encourage you to adopt an artisan in your neighbourhood by taking some photos of their wares and sending them to us to post on the blog.
I drive past so many artisans and always think ‘wow, that’s pretty amazing’. The skill and workmanship that goes into these pieces is astounding. How about we give them a platform to show off their wares and help them grow their business.
Perhaps you’re a branding/design whizz and you want to create some business cards for your artisan? Or maybe you want to collaborate with him/her and create some cool new designs? (See The Indalo Project for some great ideas.)
So please use your skills, talents and platforms to help an artisan in your neighbourhood.
Meet Venecia my local artisan HERE.
