Made Unique has its roots in the experience of founder, Ruth Moffat, who comes from a Fine Art background but has also created cards and decorative items over the years. Finding ways to sell creations and to keep going with creative practice outside of any group or structure were constant challenges and connecting with others revealed that many were finding the same thing. Lack of experience, opportunity, guidance and confidence are all things that can undermine the joy of making and frustrate desires to get more established. Made Unique comes alongside creatives to address these struggles and support makers however we are able.
As we’ve got going there have been opportunities to encourage not just those who would like to sell what they make but those who may not have had a go at making anything in their home before… and everyone in between! We share ideas and materials, look for ways to reach those most at need, and as a community, we celebrate even the most simple expressions of creativity.
We believe creating is joyful, life-affirming, healing, adventurous, playful, restful, and that it holds value both for the creator and those who get to enjoy what is made. Homes are made richer by the creativity they house.
