Welcome to craft editions

Craft Editions began life in 2016 to celebrate and promote craft, which is my passion. I travel extensively throughout Ireland and South Africa, meeting master craftspeople and immersing myself in the world of making. You can read the stories about some of these makers in the Featured Makers section of the Craft Editions website.

Having met so many inspiring craftspeople I decided to start collaborating with a select group to curate a collection of beautiful things for the home. All the pieces in the collection are individually handmade for Craft Editions and in most cases are either unique or limited editions.

Craft Editions will be attending a selection of events throughout 2019 which are listed below. Please do come along and say hello.

The Way We Do Business

We are passionate about craftsmanship and committed to building collaborative and mutually beneficial relationships with the makers we work with. This includes being transparent about the way we do business and paying a fair price, to reflect the skill and time required to make things by hand.

Our passion for craft means we travel far and wide, from the Atlantic coast of Ireland, to the Limpopo Province in the far north east of South Africa. Yes we love to travel, but we also believe it is important to personally meet the many wonderful craftspeople who make items for Craft Editions. In this way we can show respect for their craft, learn about their skills and write their stories, which we are inspired to tell.
