The new website provides a one-stop searchable directory of creatives based in and around Lewes and Eastbourne.
The mission of The Makers Directory is to encourage people to support, value and buy from local makers and artists. Use the website to search for the perfect hand-crafted gift, commission work for your home, 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.
The Makers Directory is a not-for-profit endeavour, started by Corina Fletcher Buckwell and Charlotte Parsons, fuelled by their passion to connect buyers directly with local makers. It has been funded by Lewes District and Eastbourne Borough Councils as part of their response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Additional artists and makers are encouraged to be listed - as long as they live or work in the Eastbourne Borough or Lewes District.
If you, or anyone you know is interested in reaching new audiences of buyers, collectors and fellow makers, register online at themakersdirectory.co.uk
