If you are fed up with visiting local shops that sell imported souvenirs and mass-produced artwork rather than products from local artists, the New Forest Collective is for you! We are an online shopping platform that supports local talent from the area, ensuring all products are produced and sold by artisans working and living in the National Park.
As a resident’s of the New Forest, we are proud of where we live and passionate about buying from locally talented artisans. Being creative ourselves, we wanted to build a platform that helped likeminded artists and craftspeople come together in a supportive community to promote and sell their work online. I guess you could call us the Etsy of the New Forest!
We are the Collective
With the National Park providing such an inspirational environment, its not surprising that the New Forest is bursting with creatives who want to share their work with you. Every artisan has their own story to tell and you can get to know each one by visiting the Artists page. Whether you are looking for ceramics, jewellery, artwork, photography, homewares or prints, when you buy from the New Forest Collective not only will you find that unique gift or perfect piece for your home, garden or business, you will also be supporting local talent.
