about us... The Artisan Group™ is on a mission to introduce Hollywood to the best of the handcrafted movement. We do it by providing owners of artisan businesses the opportunity to introduce their products to celebrities, industry leaders and members of the press through participation in major award show gift lounges such as those leading up to The Academy Awards*, The Golden Globes* and The Primetime Emmys*. Because The Artisan Group takes a collaborative approach to participation in these lounges, a marketing opportunity that would be prohibitively expensive for most small companies becomes surprisingly affordable. The Artisan Group also offers members guidance in sales, marketing, social media and public relations. Members of The Artisan Group showcase an array of handcrafted products, including jewelry; bath and spa products; designer stationery and paper goods; crocheted accessories; children’s apparel and toys; hair accessories; purses and totes; hand-poured candles; hand-bound books and journals; illustrations and paintings; hand-dyed scarves; fine art photography; pet accessories and toys; and woodworked items. Need help sourcing a specific type of handcrafted product or gift? Contact us, and we’ll email you links to our member’s shoppes that best match what you’re looking for. We’re happy to help! If you’d like more information about The Artisan Group, or any of the artists included in our exhibit, send an email to info@theartisangroup.org. Sincerely, Valerie Guerrero Founder, The Artisan Group

ARTISANGROUP

Gives Back

The Artisan Group donates to several worthy charities every year, targeting the aid of children, animals, and the environment. Our mission is to help create awareness and to raise funds for many valuable ongoing programs. Our members generously donate products from their shoppes, and we as a group then donate our exclusive swag bags full of handcrafted products, valued at over $800, to these charities to auction off during their fundraising efforts. We’re pleased to announce our gift bags have been auctioned off for thousands of dollars to help these worthy charities. We recently participated in annual fundraising events hosted by The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Columbia Basin, Summit Animal Rescue Association, National MS Society, and Let’s Move Together Arthritis Foundation. To learn more about these great charities, or to find out how you can help, please visit: www.bngclub.org (The Boys & Girls Club) www.sararescue.com (Summit Animal Rescue Association) www.nationalmssociety.org (National MS Society) www.lmt.arthritis.org (Let’s Move Together Arthritis Foundation)
