What handcrafted item have you never seen for sale at a reasonable price but would buy if it were?
Is there a handcrafted item you'd like to buy but have never found for sale at a reasonable price? What would that price be? The item could be practical, decorative, or both. It could be made of wood, cloth, paper, plastic, recycled materials, or almost anything else that takes your fancy. I'm asking this question for an artist's collective looking for new ideas. Geek/science craft ideas would be particularly welcome for this group. If your ideas don't help them, they may be of use to others. Thank you!
Pricing is such a dicey matter...looking forward to seeing what this discussion holds!
It is an interesting question since the item which one might like to buy is more likely to be something which is made by people whose set of skills is more likely to require specialised equipment such as those of a glass blower. As I understand it glass may even be the one craft which is also the most profitable.
As a child, I grew up in an area where water was scarce and I always wanted the opportunity to use a Dowsing stick known as a dowsing or divining rod to help me find water on land. Definitely a geeky science item but whether it would be popular or profitable enough is the question?
Dowsing is very popular. Check on you tube.
We don't have a glass blower, but we have a person who works with glass in unique ways, including 3d printing with molten glass. Thanks for the ideas.
I would spend money on real wood items, small and large. They are hard to find and expensive if you do. The other item I can't find is decorative metal, ex; stair railings and screen dividers.
Thank you. We have a couple of woodworkers and at least one metal worker.
How do we get to see what your friends are doing. I am very interested.
I'm planning to write articles about each artist and the items we make. Also, I'm planning to write a bunch of how-to articles by mining my friends' knowledge. I'll write a hub about the articles if they are successful and put them on hubs if not.
