Perthshire Artisans, a Smart Village platform showcasing the best of the region’s creative talent, has launched the stunning new website: www.perthshire-artisans.scot
Perthshire Artisans is a Smart Village powered by GrowBiz Scotland, the Perthshire-based rural enterprise support organisation. For any first time readers, Smart Villages are digital communities that promote enterprise support and connectivity for rural businesses across Scotland. They can be based around a geographical area or, like Perthshire Artisans, a community of shared interest.
Perthshire Artisans is the place to discover individually handcrafted pieces and creative services from across rural Perthshire. The new website is far more than just an online shop— it focuses on supporting and showcasing the artisan way of life and highlighting the beautiful rural Perthshire setting.
The wide variety of artworks and products featured on the platform have been carefully curated and many are exclusive to Perthshire Artisans. You can meet each artist in fascinating individual videos, where you’ll hear about their inspirations, individual practices and special techniques.
Perthshire Artisans currently features a selection of nine creatives, with a second round of applications set to be opening soon. The platform provides the artisans with a range of marketing and admin services, which can include fulfilling orders on behalf of the artisan, enabling them to focus on the creative side of their business.
GrowBiz CEO Jackie Brierton comments: ‘It is exciting to see how a Smart Village can provide both a unique insight and opportunity to the region’s creative sector, and also illustrate the potential and innovation of rural communities working together to develop new and dynamic ways to support micro-enterprises.
'The recent economic shutdown has proved how vital a digital platform is for small creative businesses to continue to reach their audience and have varied routes to market, and we are delighted that Perthshire Artisans is now up and running and providing that option.'
