Katie Honnor

Kaleider Resident

I’m the Director of madebyhandonline.com – a curated website dedicated to selling high quality Contemporary Craft from all over the UK and celebrating makers. 

The company was established at the end of 2010 and I run the business with a small team in beautiful Devon. As well as selling ceramics, jewellery, textiles and more, we work with other organisations and national events to help champion makers and we sponsor some of the UK’s leading Craft and Design events. The site also has a resource section to help spread the word about exhibitions, opportunities, courses and workshops.

A lot of my time is focused on PR and marketing and developing audiences for Contemporary Craft. I love to find creative ways to promote makers and support their businesses, both online and in the ‘real’ world.

I was originally a teacher, specialising in English, and have been a school governor at my son’s school (including vice chair and chair). I’ll always have a deep interest in education and I’m keen to collaborate with creative people to share skills, support others and learn new things myself!
