Handmade in Norway

Creativity & Community

Creating a Community

Over the last 18 months Handmade in Norway has grown rapidly. This is a creative network that spans the length and breadth of Norway with close to 2300 members.

In August 2017 Handmade in Norway was officially registered as a business in Norway. With the goal to support and promote makers, designers and crafters in their quest to develop their skills and in many cases, sell the items they create.

Handmade in Norway is run exclusively by Kelly Palencia.


Handmade in Norway offers a range of memberships specially tailored to give you a creative boost, whatever your level. Our aim is to inspire you to continue being creative and to offer services that can lift you to achieve more. Maybe you want to learn, maybe you want to sell, maybe you want help in finding your own creative tribe...

We help you inspire others with your creativity, increase your creative network and find your niche in the market.


We are very proud to say that we have arranged an art and design market nearly every month so far this year - and we have many more planned. Check out where we will be and come and meet the wonderfully talented makers that make up the Handmade in Norway community.


"I would like to share my experience about the SALT night market - curated by Handmade in Norway.
Having been to different markets in the last 1.5 years, I have to admit this was by far one of the best organised markets.
Kelly had everything in place and it was easy for us (sellers) to just arrive and arrange our stuff.
Although it was a first time market, but the response it drew from people was emphatic.

I am definitely going there the next time too. Thanks Kelly for opening up a new avenue for our sales.
