Made in Norway
Hello, welcome to Nordic Workshop, helping you find Norway’s finest independent makers and local businesses.
We’re here to connect talented Norwegian artists and producers and their supporters.
Nordic Workshop is
An inspiring online space for Norway’s community of independent artisans, makers, small businesses, designers and entrepreneurs to showcase their work and reach new customers.
A convenient way for customers to find authentic, slow-made, traditional, short- travelled and sustainable products and services made in Norway.
We know every product has a story behind it, so here’s ours.
I’m Mette, founder of Nordic Workshop.
My mother is a talented ceramicist. Her gorgeous creations have always been hugely popular at the local Christmas market. But the rest of the year, she struggled to find those appreciative customers. As an artistic soul, her passion for ceramics doesn’t extend to sitting at a computer marketing her work. I offered to help.
Then, I realised my mother wasn’t the only one. Most creatives are devoted to their craft but feel daunted by promoting themselves or their work, not knowing where or even how to begin.
We created Nordic Workshop to forge links between Norwegian artists and producers and the customers who treasure their work. To give a voice to artisans and at the same time make it easy for supporters of authentic, Norwegian made products to find items that inspire them.
You care about surrounding yourself with authentic, and meaningful handmade creations. You scour design magazines, museum shops and art markets for great quality items that tell a story.
Now, Nordic Workshop can connect you with creatives across Norway for slow-made, Scandinavian crafts and design without the lengthy search.
