First off not sure if this is the right place mods so shift it if you want to.
My daughter Siobhan has been working on this for some time and is about ready for 'trela online' to launch.http://trelaonline.co.uk/
thought some of you maybe interested. The first 20 members can join fr. She is going to be applying for funding to set up a sort of collective and have local premises.
This is what she wrote about it so I am going to post this here for her. She's a member of the FH forum but has only just joined and asked if I would post here about it for her.
I think it's a great idea and thought yous might like to take a look. Glass category is obviously included.
Trela! – Bringing creative people together
Trela is an exciting new social enterprise based in West Lothian aiming to bring creative people together to create, learn, network and source supplies. We will also be working with the local community advancing the understanding of mental health issues and offering ways of using creativity to relieve stress.
On the site you will find event and workshop listings, a directory which will be filled with creative businesses and suppliers, a forum, articles, resources and competitions.
We will officially launch on the 10th of January though we are inviting people to come and join us now to help us get started.
We want to show the world that arts and crafts can be inspiring and very useful. We also want the world to see how everyday things that you do or are involved in are creative. We have group pages for make up artists, nail artists and body art in amongst the knitting, jewellery and clay.
Free listing to the first 20 people that register and would like a listing on our directory . The normal price will be £10.
We are setting up as a social enterprise so all money will be going back in to the business and community.
Come and have a wee look around, join in the discussions and let us know what you would like to see on the site.
