Handmade in Norway is a large and active creative community in Norway.

I am a designer and illustrator with over 20 years of experience from packaging, branding, print, web design and online promotions. I am also extremely passionate about handmade products. I now use my skills to help small creative businesses to thrive. I arrange markets, and workshops that benefit this ever-growing network.

My name is Kelly Palencia and it's very nice to meet you!



With 15 markets in 2018 the Handmade in Norway events have a reputation for delivering high quality handmade products.


Skill sharing is a key element of our community minded ethics. We make it possible for creative people to teach and learn from each other.


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 to market your handmade products, increase your creative network, and to find your customers.
