About Us

About us

Studio 1 is a craft collective of Irish designers and artisans selling their handmade products, ranging from jewellery and ceramics to wood art and sculpture.

We started our journey in 2014, through a pilot scheme for a start up social enterprise community interest company. Originally called The Strabane Craft Collective CIC, the initiative was the first in the North of Ireland to reach fruition through the Department of Social Development’s new ‘Social Hub Enterprise’ scheme.

The project itself was not for profit and offered artists a platform to showcase their work without great financial expense.

We continued to trade after the 6 month initial set up stage, evolving from a social enterprise to being run and managed by one of the former directors acting on behalf of all members, Leona Gallen from Make Memories.

‘I wanted to continue our collective after all the effort that was involved to get us up and running, so I decided to launch Studio 1. A platform that still allowed designers and makers to sell their work with low overheads. I realise the importance of promoting local artisans and hand-crafted goods, that are not mass produced. My home town of Strabane and surrounding areas, are home to some very talented people and I want to share what we have to offer!’
