ARTitude is a short version of our group name – Women with ARTitude. We’ve been meeting on a monthly basis for about two years, originally to offer support and encouragement in our artistic expression. We’ve all come to art through diverse routes which makes for an interesting and stimulating mixture of styles and subject matter. In April last year we had to postpone our exhibition at the Union Gallery, Edinburgh, however we continue creating new pieces of work to exhibit in the future and we are therefore delighted to have this opportunity to showcase some of our work online through Edinburgh Palette. We are Deb Ball, Sheena Berry, Gloria Henderson, Evie Jamieson, Barbara Moyes and Lorna Nisbet.

We at Handmade in Britain are delighted to announce the second edition of our Interactive Virtual Craft Fair that is due to take place towards the end of March. Sharing the month with International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day, this new edition will focus on supporting and celebrating women in craft, as well as makers from BAME communities.
As an organisation, we are keen to reflect the full range of backgrounds and perspectives found in contemporary Britain, and have made a conscious decision to do our part in creating a more diverse and inclusive craft and design community. The second edition of our virtual craft fair marks the beginning of this journey.
The first edition of our Virtual craft fair, that took place between 10-15 November 2020, saw 64 artists exhibit, 17564 unique visitors from 80 countries, and over 40 live sessions, demonstrations, and craft workshops.
