UK Handmade is “a design led online magazine committed to showcasing and promoting the best creative talent the UK has to offer.” Their social network of the same name connects artists in the UK with each other. Members have uploaded pictures of their handmade goods including gorgeous jewelry, beautiful shawls, and even dinosaur hats.

The UK Handmade social network uses their discussion forum to engage members. To help the 400+ members get to know each other, they’ve started an Introductions thread. More recently, after publishing the Spring Issue of their magazine, they started a forum discussion to get feedback from members.
