Meet The MakerMarita Gustavsen from MaGu Smykker
Marita specialises in a 1000 year old chainmaille technique, that was used originally by Vikings. Her designs are beautifully intricate and elegant.
In this Meet the Maker we chat about the techniques she uses, how she got interested in the first place, and the importance of learning new skills.
I asked Marita if she had any advice for others that would like to set up their own creative business. Watch the video to hear her answer!
As part of our season of Virtual Art & Design Markets, I will be chatting with the makers and shakers that have come together in the Handmade in Norway network. We might not be able to meet in person at our usual outdoor markets, but there's no reason why we can't get together online.
The Virtual Art & Design Markets are our solution to a season of cancelled markets due to COVID-19. The setting might be different, but the message is very much the same.
Buying handmade products not only supports artisans, designers and makers, it also offers you products that reflect your true individuality.
