Bert & Gert’s Artisan Crafts
Started through a love of arts and crafts in 2012, Bert and Gert’s is run by Birmingham based brothers Mark and Jason Wilkes. While trying to think of a name for their business, they decided to honour their late grandparents. Bert being their paternal grandfather and Gert being their maternal grandmother. Making Bert and Gert’s a family business with a family name. Their aim is to support, encourage and promote small, local businesses and to bring arts and crafts to a wider audience.
Jason and Mark are thrilled to partner with Crafting Live events to host an artisan finished crafts pavilion at the Sandown event in January.
Bert & Gerts are looking for designer makers, artists and crafters who would like to sell their work at these exciting events.
Jason says “Our events have a community feel, all the traders are supportive of each other and we want to give them the opportunity to grow their hobbies and passions in to successful sustainable businesses”.
