Showcasing South Australia’s best visual artists, craftspeople, designers and creative spaces.
This curated online platform is Guildhouse’s exciting new initiative for marketing the work of professional South Australian visual artists, craftspeople, designers and creative spaces. When someone wants to find a special gift or commission a creative professional to fulfil their brief – this is where they come. Well Made is first port of call for engaging with the work of South Australia’s finest creative professionals, the State’s best creative spaces, and their supporters.
Well Made offers an innovative environment in which to publicise your business in a marketplace increasingly demanding high-end bespoke products. Aligning your brand with our core values of craftsmanship, quality and integrity enables you to effectively build ongoing relationships with a growing audience looking to purchase unique work, collaborate on a new project, invest in residential and commercial commissions or planning their visit to South Australia.
Well Made acknowledges and thanks our partners. Well Made is a Guildhouse initiative supported by the South Australian Government through Arts South Australia.
The goal of Well Made is to create a place where audiences can see the breadth of talent that South Australia’s creative professionals have to offer, to showcase our Creative Spaces and the unique, high-quality work made in South Australia. The Well Made team is supported by all Guildhouse staff, and we commission professional photographers, filmmakers, designers, web developers and other professionals as required.
The Well Made Artist Services Manager plays a number of key roles, including curating the site to ensure the presentation of outstanding and relevant content and working with individuals and organisations to tell their story through digital and print profiling opportunities. The Artist Services Manager also manages the commissioning process, ensuring each brief is matched to the most appropriate professional and seeking opportunities for creative practitioners.
