Arts & Crafts Village is Changing

We're going Caribbean wide!

In the coming weeks and months we'll be making BIG changes
  • We'll be adding lots of new Caribbean creative people to the blog
  • We'll be putting up a full website with shopping capability

  • We'll be integrating the Caribbean Creatives Cafe community with the Website and Blog

  • We know through our own experience that it's difficult to make a mark online by yourself, but we also know that there's so much to be gained by having an effective online presence...
So we decided to offer a collaborative project so that we can all benefit from a bigger web presence.
  • You can take part if you have your own website-even if you already have your own shopping on your site. 
  • You can take part if you have no website - even if you only make small amounts of items. 
  • Once you are serious about wanting to sell, expand your horizons, build connections - TALK TO US!
  • All Caribbean Creatives are welcome - Arts, Crafts, Gifts, Music, Packaged Foods, Books, Fashion, Accessories - you name it!
We're doing all this so that Caribbean Creatives - ourselves included - can establish business online and build online contacts for customers, suppliers, collaborations, activities, promotion.


If you are interested, drop us a line using the Contact Form, tell us a little about yourself and we'll get back to you with more information.

In the meantime - pop on over to Caribbean Creative Cafe and join there - add some photos of your products or work in progress, tell us about yourself, look at the discussions, perhaps add to the Barter Box...See You There!

Please share this post with people you think may be interested - and if you have ideas, suggestions, questions - add a comment below!

  2. Hi Finola
    I was searching for Le Bleu perfume and found your blog.
    We are returning in Jan 2010 after an absence of about 4 years from St. Lucia. It will be good to see our friends and paint with them again (I'm doing a few workshops)This time we're in Rodney Bay, where more of the action is.
    Are you still in the mall ?

  3. Hi Jacqueline!
    I live in Barbados now - I'm often in St. Lucia and I know Alcina has been keeping up the plein air painting at least each September on the international day.

    There's a big plein air session here in Barbados also - in Feb - take a look, maybe you'd enjoy popping in for that - there are various workshops by various kinds of aritsts too - Alcina is doing one - enamelling I think.

    great to hear from you
