Blood Moon - July 2018

Blood Moon July 2018

2018 is proving to be a fantastic year for moon spotters! The year started with the beautiful Super Blue Blood Moon (which inspired our popular print). It was a ‘Supermoon' as the Moon was at its closest distance to earth (this is called Perigee), a ‘Blue Moon’ as it was the second full moon in one calendar month, and a ‘Blood Moon’ as it was also a lunar eclipse. 

Unfortunately we didn’t get to witness the lunar eclipse here in the UK earlier this year, but luckily we’ll get another chance this month! On July the 27th there will be another spectacular lunar eclipse or ‘Blood Moon’. The name ‘Blood Moon’ refers to the typical dark red colour that the moon turns during a lunar eclipse.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind Earth’s shadow, when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are exactly aligned, with the Earth in between. The July 27th eclipse will be the longest lunar eclipse in the 21st century as it’s happening when the moon is near its longest distance from earth (this is called Apogee). Totality during the July 2018 lunar eclipse will last around 103 minutes! 


To celebrate the lunar eclipse, we have created a limited edition Blood Moon print.

Full Moon Names - Art Prints

The moon has inspired artists throughout history, with its powerful influence on nature and its waxing and waning from new moon to full moon and back again. We got the inspiration for our moon art prints when, on a summer camping trip to the New Forest, we spotted a particularly large and dazzling full moon. Knowing that September's full moon was called the Harvest Moon, we did some research (i.e. got our phones out) and found out that July's moon is called the Buck Moon (other names include the Thunder Moon). 

Full Moon names were created to help track the seasons. In ancient times, it was common to track the changing seasons by following the lunar month rather than the solar year, which our modern calendar is based on. The name of the full moon was often a description relating to a particular activity or event that occurred during that month, like the Harvest Moon, Flower Moon or Snow Moon. The most well known moon names today originate from Native American tribes, however giving names to the full moons has been common in many cultures throughout history. 

Here is some more information about our moon art prints and their names:

Full Moon Names Year Art Print Drawn Together Art Collective



Native Americans and medieval Europeans named January's full moon after the howling of hungry wolves. Other names for this month's full moon include Old Moon and Ice Moon.

The cold, and snowy weather of February in North America earned its full moon the name Snow Moon. Other names include Storm Moon and Hunger Moon.

Native Americans named March’s full moon the Sap Moon, after the tapping of the maple trees. Another very common name is the Worm Moon after the worm trails that would appear in the thawed ground.

April's full moon is named the Pink Moon after a species of wildflower (Wild Ground Phlox) that flower around at this time of year in North America. Other names for this moon is the Sprouting Grass Moon or the Egg Moon.

May’s rich flower blooms give its full moon the name Flower Moon in many cultures. Other names include the Hare Moon, the Milk Moon, and the Corn Planting Moon.

The harvesting of strawberries in North America in June give its full moon the name Strawberry Moon. In Europe it was often called the Rose Moon.

Male deer begin to regrow their antlers in July, hence the Native American name for July's full moon is the Buck Moon. Other names include Thunder Moon.

August's full moon is called the Sturgeon Moon after the sturgeon fish, that was abundant in North America during August. It has also been called the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon.

The most commonly know named moon, the Harvest Moon, refers to the nearest full moon to the autumn equinox when crops are usually gathered. It normally occurs is September but can sometimes happen in October.  Other names include the Corn Moon and the Barley Moon.

The first full moon after the Harvest Moon is the Hunter's Moon. This was the perfect month to hunt deer and fox, now unable to hide in the bare fields. The bright Hunter's Moon is also gave hunters the opportunity to stalk prey at night. Other names include the Travel Moon.

Some say the Beaver Moon is named after Native Americans setting beaver traps during this month, while others say the name comes from beavers building their winter dams around this time. Another common name is the Frost Moon.

10 Questions to ask yourself when starting a creative business

We recently read an interesting book on business which states that the most successful companies ask themselves questions about what service they will provide, rather than stating what they will do, when they launch. This encourages business owners to stay relevant and perspective to the market around them and their customers. There are many books and blogs on this, however there doesn't seem to be many relevant to smaller, handmade businesses. So here at Drawn Together we have compiled a list of questions which we hope will help you launch or grow your creative business. 

1. Will customers 'want' or 'need' my product?

Is your brand going to provide items which are seen as ‘luxury’ or are you providing something that is a 'necessity'? This is very integral to how to brand yourself and advertise your products. For us, it was an easy question to answer, as artwork is definitely a luxury over a necessity. We have tired to keep our branding clean and slick to mirror this idea. People want to feel excited to purchase one of our art prints, so packaging has to feel a bit special. We make sure our online orders are beautifully wrapped for our costumers.

There are certain handmade items that can fall into both categories of course, such as bath products or clothes. Have a good think about who you expect to buy your items and make sure your branding mirrors this.

2. Why will customer want or need my products?

As a business owner, you should be constantly asking yourself 'why'. One of the main appeals of purchasing a handmade item is the opportunity to meet the maker and hear the story of the product.  Make sure you know how to speak about your handmade items (an artform in itself!). Also try to understand why someone would want your product. Is your product unique? How so? Think about things you've brought recently and ask yourself why you brought them? Why did you choose that product over another? Did price matter? Did the product have a personal significance to you? Did you think it was unique? Any other reason?

3. What value will my product have?

This is a very important question to ask yourself. First, price your items according to the cost of materials, expenses, time it takes to make it etc. Then ask yourself some questions. Will people purchase your item because they think it is good value for money? Or will people want to purchase your product because it is handmade and unique? Will a higher price in fact make your product more desirable? Once again, make sure the branding corresponds with the pricing of your products. Also, the price of your products should dictate where you try to sell them. If you're selling jewellery for £1000 a piece, you're probably not going to have much joy selling at a small local market. You would probably be better off focusing your efforts on more established trade fairs or shows.

4. What is my USP (Unique Selling Point)

It's nearly impossible to make a completely unique product, but you need to think about how your product will stand out.  This is something you'll need to think about to add into your products story. Jewellery and art are probably the most common items in the handmade marketplace. How will yours stand out from the rest? What is special about you and your products? 

5. What message will my website / stall have? 

Seeing your website or your stall at a market is often the first impression people will have of your brand. So both your website and stall should reflect the the products you're selling. Are your products fun or serious? This will make sure you catch the attention of the right people. 

6. Does my website explain to the visitor what I sell immediately?

We've seen tons of websites where you have to click around various pages to actually understand what the website is selling. The percentage of visitors looking past the first page of your website is tiny. You only have one chance to really capture the attention of your visitors. It is also well worth familiarise yourself with a few facts about how people visit websites, for example, only 35% of visitors will come directly to your homepage, the rest would have found you via a search engine and will end up on another page, so make sure it's easy to understand the message of your website and brand on every page.

7. Will my stall explain to the visitor what I sell immediately?

People can often be hesitant to ask questions about your products if they're unsure of what they are for or how they work. We often see handmade stalls that sells a huge range of products, which can get confusing to potential customer. If you do sell a range of different products, make sure you have a really strong brand to link all your products so your stall looks more consistent. 

8. What did I achieve?

It can be hard to keep motivated when you are working for yourself. Whenever you sit down to do an admin day, make sure set a goal of what to achieve in the time you've got. This will guarantee you don't spend hours on a task without achieving much. Looking back and evaluating what you have achieved in the last week/month/year can be a useful motivator.

9. What mistakes have I made and how can I learn from them? 

This is a good question to ask yourself after selling at a market or show. Did you not make as much money as you expected?  Which of your products worked and which didn’t work quite well? Can you find a reason for this? There are a lot of external factors at markets that you can't control of course (eg. footfall, and who walks through the doors). But observe nearby stalls that are doing well, can you learn something from them?

10. What is my long term goal?

It is easy with a handmade business to just go with the flow and hope for the best. But it's also great to give yourself some direction by setting yourself a list of goals for the month / year. Whether this be increase traffic to your website by X amount or create X more different product by X date. Giving yourself specific goal will help keeping you inspired and motivated to keep going.

Once in a Blue Moon…

What better way to start 2018 than to look to the sky and catch a glimpse the beautiful Wolf Moon, peaking on January the 2nd. The Wolf Moon will even more spectacular as it is also a supermoon, meaning the full moon coincides with the point in its orbit at which it is closest to Earth. This makes the full moon appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. January’s full moon is the second of three back to back supermoons.

But it doesn’t end there….

January 2018 will see two full moons. The second full moon in one calendar month is called a Blue Moon. This is where the expression ‘Once in a blue moon’ comes from, meaning something happening rarely (but in reality a blue moon actually happens about every thirty-two months or so). The Blue Moon will be the second and last supermoon of 2018 and will also coincide with a lunar eclipse! When a full moon temporarily turns red during a total lunar eclipse it is called a Blood Moon.

So make sure you catch a glimpse of the Super Blue Blood Moon on January 31st!

And it gets even better…

Our brand new limited edition “Blue Moon”  and Super Blue Blood Moon prints are now available to buy in the shop, as well as our January "Wolf Moon" Print.

10 Tips to Prepare for Craft Fair Success

Thinking about selling your handmade products at a craft fair soon? What are the essentials you need to remember when selling at craft fairs? 

Craft fairs are a fantastic way of getting your creative products out to the general public. But, if you have never done it before, it may seem a little over-whelming, knowing how to prepare or even what to bring on the day. 

We started Drawn Together 3 years ago and it’s been quite the journey. We’ve certainly learned what to do, and what not to do the hard way! Here are a few things we wish people would have told us when we started out. We have compiled a list of 10 useful steps, with plenty of tips for the new trader, on how to prepare for craft market success.

Drawn Together Craft Fair Success Stall Setup Tips Craft Fair Success

1. Do your research

Think about what fair, show or market would suit your products. Would your mini-brand work best in a small family oriented market, a country fair, or bustling inner city pop up? If you get the opportunity, try to visit a few local craft fairs, to eye up the competition. How much are traders asking for products similar to yours? Do you think your products would go down well here? How much does a pitch cost? Do you need to bring or hire a table? What is the expected footfall? Will I need insurance to trade? If you can’t visit a market in person, make sure you do thorough research online.

The big craft fairs are likely to be oversubscribed. To avoid disappointment, it might be better to start by applying to a smaller local market. This is also a great way of testing the waters, before moving on to more established fairs or markets. Some of our best markets have been small local ones, but we have also spent our weekend standing in an empty church hall! Make sure you research the market or fair to see that they are doing relevant advertising for the event.

2.  Prepare your stock

In our opinion, it is better to have a smaller selection of high quality products on offer, than to overload your stall with lots of stock. If it at all possible, try to offer products in a variety of price ranges. If your products are made to order make sure you bring some samples and a clear instruction on ordering and delivery method.

It can be a little tricky judging how much stock to bring to your first market. Be prepared to adjust your stock levels as you go on. You will soon find out which products are most popular. For your first market try to set a realistic target of what you would like to sell. Bring enough stock to meet your target, then a little extra just in case. Most craft fair organisers will ask you not to pack up before the end of the fair, so it is important to bring enough stock. 

3. Think about branding

It is worth thinking about branding, even as a new trader. Branding can start as simple as a logo and a business card. But if you want to go further, a mood board can be useful. Write a short description of your products and explain the story behind your brand. Think about fonts, material, colours and packaging that compliment your products. Try to identify your typical customer. How would your brand appeal to them?

4. Create your stall display

Making an impact with your stall display is important, as it is the customers’ first impression of you and your products. But don’t worry, a  great display doesn’t have to cost much to produce. Try to be inventive with the materials you use, and use colours that complement your products. You could try adding personality with some interesting props. Creating height is also a great way of increasing the impact of your stall, and an eye-catching banner will help customers remember you name. 

Get the dimensions of your table and create a mock up of your display before the market, to make sure it looks the way you want. We have found mock-up very useful, as often the actual size of the pitch is not quite as big as you might have imagined! 

5. Think about payment

Drawn Together Craft Fair Success Card Payment izettle PayPal

When we started accepting card payments our sales more than doubled and now the majority of our sales are made with cards payments. Many companies, such as iZettle and PayPal, now offer affordable card readers, even for small traders. You will have to pay a fee for using a card reader, usually a small percentage of your sales.  In our experience, the fee will generally be earned back quickly by the increase of sales from taking card payments. Having a card reader can also encourage customers to buy a more expensive item, or several items, from your stall.

6. Get informed

Make sure you read up on all the information from the event organiser, to avoid any surprises on the day. What is the size of your table or stall? Is there a floor-plan, and where is your stall located on it? How is the parking arrangements at the venue? Is your stall upstairs or downstairs? What time can you set up from? What is the best route to get to the venue? Is there Wi-Fi? Are there mains power sockets near your stall? If you can’t find the information you need in any of the material the organisers have sent you, send them a friendly e-mail to find out. 

7. Promote

Make sure you promote the event on social media, as well as telling friends and family, colleagues, or anyone you think might be interested in buying your products. Post pictures of your fair preparation, to build up excitement about the event. We always like to offer our customers a multi-buy deal to encourage sales on the day, or you might want to consider a discount code. 

8. What to bring

Our essential Craft Fair Kit:

Drawn Together 10 Tips Craft Fair Success What To Bring

Stock to sell, tablecloth, props for stall display, trading name sign, price tags or price list, cash box, change for float, mobile phone & charger (or battery pack), business cards or other promotional material, mailing list, pencils and pens, bags or other packaging material, notebook to record sales, sellotape, scissors, string, cleaning cloth, card payment reader (if you have one), copy of your Public Liability Insurance (if needed).

Other things to consider:

How is the lighting at the venue? A battery powered lamp might be useful to illuminate your products in dark venues. A print rack or clothes rail could be handy. Check with the organiser first, to see if these are ok to bring. If possible, take along some work in progress. We like to bring a sketchbook to keep busy during quiet times. Customers will love seeing how your products are made!

9. Get packing

Pack everything you need the day before the event. Don’t forget to charge your card reader if you are bringing one. How will you get your stock safely to the venue? Can you carry everything yourself, or will you need a helping hand? We have certainly been caught out before and barely been able to lift our bags! We now use a large wheelie suitcase. A folding load carrier would be another good option. Print out the directions to the venue, so you can find you way in case of phone or SatNav failure.  

10. On the Day

Get an early start to make sure you get to the event on time. Try not to arrive too early though (yes, it does happen), as the event organiser could still be setting up and you might not be allowed in. Find out what time is the earliest you can arrive. You will soon be a pro at setting up your stall, but until you have done it a few times, make sure you give yourself plenty of time! 

If it’s your first market it might be a good idea to bring a friend to keep you company and help you out on the day. If you will be selling on your own it can be useful to bring packed lunch, snacks and plenty of water, to keep you going.

Don’t worry if you find it stressful to talk to customers at first. Just try to give off a friendly vibe and have fun. Take clues from customers’ body language. Do they want a quiet browse, or do they look keen have a chat? Smile, engage with costumers and be proud of your products!

Good Luck!

Best Unusual Galleries in London

Any art lover is incredibly lucky to live in London, with amazing galleries such as The National Gallery and the Tate galleries, displaying some of the world's most important artworks. However it is easy to get distracted by these and forget about the smaller gems normally hiding around the corner. Here at Drawn Together we have compiled a list of our favourites. 


Hauser & Wirth

23 Savile Row, Mayfair, W1S 2ET


 Hauser & Wirth Gallery

Hauser & Wirth Gallery

A smaller, white cube gallery in the heart of Mayfair. Hauser & Wirth is known world wide for representing modern emerging and established artists displaying any type of artwork from painting to video to installation. Each exhibition is perfectly curated, and Hauser & Wirth has been home to many of the more controversial art shows in London from Paul McCarthy's political sculptures to their interactive community centre. 

Check ahead for what's on as the gallery is closed inbetween exhibitions.


The Courtauld Institute of Art

Strand, London, WC2R 0RN


 The Courtauld Institute of Art

The Courtauld Institute of Art

Situated inside the beautiful Somerset House, the Courtauld displays what we personally feel is one of the best collection of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism paintings in London with artwork from Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in the permanent collection and exhibitions from Henri Tolouse-Lautrec to Cezanne's Card Players to modern artists such as Frank Auerbach.


Dulwich Picture Gallery

Gallery Rd, Dulwich, SE21 7AD


 Dulwich Picture Gallery

Dulwich Picture Gallery

A beautiful gallery situated in Dulwich Village in South London. The permanent exhibition displays an impressive collection of 17th and 18th Century European Old Masters. The temporary exhibitions are far more varied often exhibiting modern artists such as MC Esher and David Hockney, however, these exhibitions are often very busy so we recommend visiting early.

The gallery is surrounded by beautiful grounds, so visit on a nice day!


Jerwood Space

171 Union St, Southwark, SE1 0LN

 Jerwood Space

Jerwood Space

Home of the Jerwood Drawing Prize, the Jerwood Gallery is a small bright space not far from London Bridge that supports vibrant emerging artists. We highly recommend visiting during the Drawing Prize as this is one of the largest drawing exhibitions in the UK. The show celebrates drawing as a finished art form and the artists are always extremely varied demonstrating abstract to more realistic styles.


The Drawn Together Art Collective was founded a few years ago in an eclectic South London studio. Inspired by our surroundings and each others work, we decided to join forces and embark on a new creative direction together. We continued working from our first studio for over a year before we thought it was time to move on to something more permanent (and somewhere a little bit warmer...). We’ve recently moved in to a lovely newly built art studio in Streatham in South London, situated in stunning refurbished railway arches, surrounded by a beautiful open roof atrium and original Victorian London yellow-stock brickwork.

As well as our studio space in Streatham we also have our own workspaces at home, splitting our time working between the two. Rebecca’s job as a private art tutor takes her to clients all over London, so she often has to carry out personal artwork on the go, bringing her sketchbook along as she travels through the city. Maria and Hazel tend to be in the studio most days, working on commissions, paintings and illustrations. 

Drawn Together Art Collective Art Prints Artist Studio

We’ve tried to make our workspace as homely as possible and surround ourselves with inspirational images and objects. Maria and Rebecca love pinning images, postcards and artwork on the wall for inspiration. Hazel likes to surrounds herself with trinkets and found objects, but when working on her intricate watercolours she tends to keep her desk completely clear of clutter. By a stroke of luck, just as we were moving in to the studio, we managed to salvage two large antique plan chests from a local secondary school that were refurbishing their art classrooms, after a lots of love and polish these now take pride of place in our arch.

Working together in an art collective and a shared creative environment has been a great inspiration for us. We all have our ups and down and understand how difficult it can be to keep motivated when working on our own, so it has been fantastic to be able to have a network of fellow creatives at hand to bounce ideas off, or just someone to share a cup of tea and a chat with.

St Lucia Inspiration

The start of the year has been an exciting time for our art collective, as we took our first "work" trip to the stunning sundrenched Caribbean island of St. Lucia.  Inspired by many of the luscious sights on our travels we have begun creating intricate and beautiful artworks of our finds, from the impressive vistas and Piton mountain peaks, to the fragile humming birds and delicate exotic flowers of the tropical botanical gardens.  We hope to debut these artworks as part of our upcoming Spring collection.

Welcome to our blog

It's all go for our little art collective, with the new year comes this shiny new website which we hope you will enjoy. Following on from the success of a fantastic 2016 we are busy in the studio planning for the coming year.  In February we hope to find creative inspiration from our travels to the Tropics, so keep an eye out for exotic new pieces.  We are also excited to continue trading with our favourite craft markets and look forward to trying a number of beautiful new venues - it would be wonderful to meet you, so please check our calender for dates and locations.
