The Derbyshire Makers

Hello and Welcome to The Derbyshire Makers page.
Co founded in 2019 by Amanda McConnell, a professional Nature Photographer, and Louise James, a Creative Sewist,  with the aim of bringing Derbyshire Makers together who create and make unique products to sell and/or run workshops to help others develop their skills, so that together we can build a highly reputable and respected community of talented Makers and Artists.
Every Monday our posts are all about #MondayMarketing #MakersEvents where you can find out about the local events that our Makers are attending so you can pop along to meet them.
Every Wednesday we’ll be having our #WednesdayWow #MakersProducts where you can find out about what our Derbyshire Makers are creating and making so you’ll be one of the first to see their work in progress and find out how you can order their products online.
Every Friday we’ll be finishing the week off with #FridayFeelGood #MakersWorkshops where our Makers will share their upcoming workshops with us and how we can book onto them so we can fill our diaries with lots to look forward
If you’re a Maker in Derbyshire, why not join our private  group at
We look forward to meeting you soon.
