CREATIVE SPACES

What is Well Made?

This curated online platform is a Guildhouse initiative to promote the work of professional South Australian visual artists, craftspeople, designers, and creative spaces. When someone wants to find a special gift or commission a creative professional to fulfil their brief – this is where they come. 

There are a terrific amount of outstanding creative practitioners and spaces in our state and we aim to produce a guide that profiles the best of these, increasing audiences for the broad range of unique, high-quality work made in South Australia. The guide will be a promotional tool used to enhance the cultural experience of both Adelaide residents as well as the tourists who visit our city. Well Made is a marketing platform to showcase talented South Australians so you can get on with what you do best, making and producing. 

What’s in it for me?

Can you help me find what I am looking for?

Certainly! The Well Made team can assist you in commissioning the right creative professional for your needs. Simply complete your brief and we will get back to you. 

Well Made is a Guildhouse initiative and Guildhouse have been referring our artist, designer and maker members for nearly 50 years. We can offer you the benefit of our expert industry knowledge and experience. We can help you connect with a creative professional for your workshops, artistic service or to commission a new work or fit out for your home or office. Well Made and Guildhouse have a high success rate recommending the right creative professional to work with you to realise your brief.

How do I commission someone?

Commissioning a visual artist, craftsperson or designer is a rewarding process and easier than you think! 

Please refer to this dedicated section on the website here…

How much will it cost to commission and artist?

This is definitely a ‘how long is a piece of string’ question. It really depends on your brief including factors such as the nature of your request, materials, finish, size, quantity, timeframe, the level of experience of the maker you want to work with, and how long it will take to produce.

What we can say with certainty is it is helpful to provide an indication of the size of your budget, and people are frequently pleasantly surprised at how competitive it can be to commission something unique from a local producer. 

And if you are a bit strapped for cash or would rather break up your payments over a year - check out Art Money, the interest free way to buy and commission work.

There is no fee for connecting with an artist on Well Made however we do offer services to help with projects if necessary and we have experience with commercial and government projects.

What is Art Money?

The new way to buy art.  Take your art home and pay for it later. 10 payments. Interest free. Visit the Art Money website for more details.

 

Can I buy something now?

Well Made isn’t equipped for online payments, but you can reach the individuals and organisations who are listed on the site either personally through contact details they may have provided or through their representative or stockist. Studios open to visitors are also listed and you can use our handy Locations Map to view studios, galleries and retails spaces. Be sure to check out their website, as some creativesspaces and supporters will have immediate point of sale opportunities there.

What is fabulous about Well Made is it provides an avenue for you to commission something entirely unique.  If you’re interested in commissioning a visual artist, craftsperson or designer, use the ‘accepts commissions’ filter so you can easily find those who do! They are also easily identified by the red ‘commissions’ flag just like this one. Creative Spaces and Supporters accept commissions too! 

  

To commission someone, select the commission option on their profile, and provide a brief by filling in the form that pops up.  Not all makers can be contacted directly; some handle commissions through their gallery, manager or stockist and some have nominated Well Made to assist them with the commissioning process.  When you submit the form your brief will be emailed to the relevant party and you can expect a response within seven days. If you have any general queries about the commissioning process or are unsure about your requirements, please get in touch with the Well Made team.
