The Makers is a showcase for members of the Heritage Crafts Association (HCA). It brings you the best handmade items from across the UK. To purchase direct from The Makers, you can click through to individual craft websites.

The Makers is also a place to search for open workshops to visit, to find craftspeople to demonstrate at fêtes and fairs, and to find craftspeople who teach their craft and share their expert knowledge.

The Heritage Crafts Association (HCA) is the advocacy body for traditional heritage crafts. Working in partnership with Government and key agencies, it provides a focus for craftspeople, groups, societies and guilds, as well as individuals who care about the loss of traditional crafts skills, and works towards a healthy and sustainable framework for the future.

Established in July 2011 to help Professional Crafters to show they mean Business!

The Guild aims to:

  • Encourage its members and raise awareness of the beautiful handmade crafts which are available from people who have a passion for crafting.
  • Reflect the diversity of crafting and keep this skill very much alive in contemporary society.
  • Provide a directory of crafters so that they can find each other and be found by the general public.
