We also have our own online magazine called LOVE Handmade that aims to put individual markers and artisans in front of a large international audience.

You’re going to find lots of free resources in the HiN Academy , links and application forms for our markets in Oslo and a blog for creative businesses. All of these are designed to help you and provide you with an arsenal of free resources for your creative business.

Handmade in Norway is here to help and support creative businesses stand tall and grow.

This is YOUR creative network!


I am so lucky I ended up in this group 🙂 And so thankful for everything you do Kelly, I really am. You’re a very capable woman, talented, with lots of knowledge, approachable and with ability to ‘lift’ people – after each and every conversation I have with you, I feel optimistic and full of hope, like ‘I can do it’. I really appreciate all information and tips you selflessly share with all of us who wants to learn and be even better in what we do and in setting up and building our own small business. You’re a true spokesman of handmade!

Thank you, Kelly, for your advice, this opened new doors for me. I learned how to schedule posts and started to show my dolls with poems and short stories. I sold 3 dolls in December!

When I didn’t know who to ask, I found answers here. When the ideas overwhelmed me but I couldn’t decide, here I found support in clarifying my ideas. In addition, here are many tips and arrangements for creative minds/souls/hands. Thanks for all you do for us!
