Promoting art, craft & creativity in the Yorkshire Dales
Many people want to buy art and craft inspired by the Yorkshire Dales, either for themselves or as gifts. But where can they find it? If you're not from the area it can be hard to know what's on offer.
I'm on a mission to raise the profile of the Yorkshire Dales as a place of work and source of inspiration for artists, makers, writers, and photographers. I'm trying to make it easier for visitors to buy and to know where they can go to shop for art and craft, meet local makers or learn a new skill at a workshop.
Here's the plan:
- Create a map and directory on www.DalesDiscoveries.com* showing places to buy art and craft, workshop locations and details of artists and makers (we don't have to display your address if you prefer not to) and what else is nearby such as attractions, accommodation, places to eat.
- Gather together all relevant information and images into a .pdf guide which we can share on social media
- Undertake social media and PR activities to raise the profile of the Yorkshire Dales as a centre of creativity
- Build further awareness through articles, blogs and features
- Help make stronger links between artists and makers, shop and gallery owners.

I'd love it if you could be part of this activity. It's very easy to participate. Just use the form, send me your images and pay the participation fee - which is reduced if you sign up before.
* Please note: www.DalesDiscoveries.com is the independent site I run on a voluntary basis. It's a labour of love, so your help is invaluable. Your participation fee will cover technical costs and help from others, such as on PR.
After submitting your form, you'll be asked to pay your participation fee (it's discounted if you pay quickly) & then to send in your images.
