The Craft Guerrilla is a designer maker lead collective set up to work with independent Artists,Creatives and Designers Makers of quality hand made goods. Set up in 2008 by ceramicist and multi disciplined crafter Deborah Daniel Craft Guerrilla has gone on to be regarded as one of the craft world's top collectives...
Because we are independently run and self funded we do not have the capacity or funds to support other collectives or groups. The work we do serves as a model and we welcome applications from potential candidates to open their own armies! As part of the services we offer on our "HIRE US" page we are available to deliver talks, workshops, PR junkets and bespoke events so please get in touch if you want
to book us.
If you'd also like to be part of the Craft Guerrilla world wide collective get in touch!
So what are we all about?
The aim of The Craft Guerrilla is to join forces with other creative individuals and set up craft events in vacant or unused venues,associate with "friendly" businesses,provide a community to link and cross promote independent designer makers,sister armies in other cities,share web traffic,and provide realistic information and resources to our designer makers. Craft Guerrilla serves both as a resource and a viable platform to showcase up and coming designer maker talent.
Craft Guerrilla is all for education and that's why we've set up our highly successful D.I.Y. craft nights and mini workshops providing educational workshops for the public held by professional designer maker tutors.
We've worked with people like the V&A, Bury St. Edmonds Gallery, The London Transport Museum, Craft Space Birmingham, Hewlett Packard, Promax awards, Indie Tracks Festival, The William Morris Gallery and many others!
What is the East London Craft Guerrilla and The Craft Guerrilla connection?
"The East London Craft Guerrilla" is if you will, the child of the main instigator The Craft Guerrilla! As we're based in East London and this is such a big city we thought it would be great if we could leave it open for others to join us in their areas of town.
With time and as the group grows we hope to get other Craft Guerrillas set over the whole of London,the country and the world! By joining the army we join forces and increase our chances and opportunity as well as share our experience,web traffic,contacts and know how with each other. Also this spreads the net and increases chances for our army to sell at each others events,network,collaborate and exchange!
*BLOG PROMO ONLY MEMBERSHIP: This membership is open to all London based designer makers upon approval of their work. Basically this membership allows you a direct link with a banner on our 'east London" blog page only. A yearly charge applies.
Why is it important to LINK? By associating with the Craft
Guerrilla any publicity we generate will affect you and every other participant directly. By generating plenty of web traffic and through promo you'll get full advantage of all the
publicity we create for the group as a whole. We need you to link the
CRAFT GUERRILLA web site to your own site so any publicity you generate will come back to us and the collective...if every single participant does the same then we are all generating invaluable publicity and a buzz which helps everyone involved!
Do I pay commission on any sales? NO,definitely not at our craft fairs. You pay for a stall and that's it!
Can I use set up my own "Craft Guerrilla"? The name "Craft Guerrilla" is trade marked but we hope you like what we do,follow our philosophy and agree with our manifesto so much that you will want to set up your own Craft Guerrilla army in your area... but before you do we would like to know who's out there planning to use our name and following our manifesto...besides it would be rude to just go ahead without asking! There are a few guide lines we'd like to implement and keep to as we need to have a little bit of uniformity within the C. G. Army! Yearly fee for a sister army applies - remember you're only paying for your branch of the army and not for each individual member.
Please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to answer any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
