Join The Eco Art & Craft Network
A growing network of eco friendly artisans who create handmade art & craft in the UK.
Who are EcoCreate?
We began back in 2007 as 'Trash Revamp' a local Derby network of artists who worked in reclaimed and recycled materials. We met regularly to share information, inspire each other and bounce around ideas. We shared stands at events and promoted each others work. We drank lots of tea, ate homemade cakes and made lifelong friends.
Many of the artists involved also created eco friendly art and craft and wanted to include these pieces in our activities so we began discussing creating a network to encompass these. EcoCreate started as a blog and directory in 2012, expanding to include a marketplace in 2014 where members could create their own online shops. We then opened this up to the whole of the UK to make the project more viable and connect with artists from further a field.
