Local artists support Artisan August

31st July 2020, 12:02pm | By Ros Griffiths |

Artisan August is an online charity auction that runs from the 10th to 20th August….

Local resident Grace Dalgleish would normally be working as a Creative Minds Artist in Wiltshire and surrounding counties. Her job has enabled her to get to know lots of creatives and makers.  Nearly 100 of these creative folk have kindly donated works to be auctioned off for a Wiltshire based charity called People Against Poverty. Many of the contributing artists and makers are Corsham based and surrounding areas.

This local charity is passionate about alleviating poverty and suffering around the world. Artisan August has been created by Grace to raise desperately needed funds for their projects which have been greatly impacted by Covid-19. This auction aims to help tackle poverty through creativity. All proceeds will go directly to People against Poverty charity – www.peopleagainstpoverty.com

The charity runs numerous projects globally and has recently started a very local project in conjunction with Trowbridge Storehouse Foodbank.

The Artisan August charity auction has an absolute array of gorgeous items of all price points. Please check out the selection which is now open to peruse and bid for any that catch your eye once the auction goes live on 10th August!

A great place to source original artwork, accessories, home decor and gifts.

There are workshop vouchers, signed books, paintings, textiles, photography, prints and much more.

Bidding is opens on 10th August and ends on 20th August.

Grace can be contacted at grace.dalgleish@creativeminds.art
