Handmade in Norway has come a long way in a short time. I (Kelly Palencia) created a Facebook group in August 2016. The group grew at an amazing rate, and we are now a huge community of members spread all over Norway. As the group grew so did my ambition. I found out what the individuals in the group needed to further their skills and find their market. I asked, listened and answered with a market, then workshops, then helping individuals with design projects. I have 10 years experience as a graphic designer and illustrator, and these skills are being put to good use right now.
Just 6 months after the group started, ‘I’ became ‘we’ when I met Glenda Sherlock. Glenda has many years of experience in marketing and shares my passion for this project.
The group is no longer mine, but ours. We all played our part in it’s creation, and we will all contribute to it’s success. Glenda and I see ourselves as more ‘Service providers’ now. The group is alive and living it’s life, we are still listening and answering. Providing the content, services and skills to push further individually and collectively.
