First of March is the luxury online marketplace dedicated to sharing the exquisite craftsmanship of Wales with the world.
Founded in 2019, First of March showcases both established and newly qualified Makers from a range of craft disciplines, who are fast becoming the 'ones to watch' in the design space. Bridging the gap between the digital and analogue worlds, First of March curates a selection of contemporary pieces relevant to a modern and sophisticated 21st Century audience and lifestyle.
As individual and diverse as their Makers, First of March is able to offer a complete range of options from bespoke, commissioned pieces to made to order or stock items - reflecting and responding to the unique demands of both Makers and customers.
Join invited guests online or at the beautiful Beaumont Hotel, Mayfair on October 6th for the exclusive London launch of First of March, where they will be displaying pieces from their upcoming online exhibitions - going beyond the 'known' to showcasing something unexpected, unique and a little different - capsule pieces that define this new and evolving brand. Hear the story behind the platform as Ruth, the Welsh founder and inspiration behind First of March, reveals how her passion for timeless, design led craft drove her desire to reshape perceptions of both contemporary and traditional craftsmanship from Wales. Discover how bringing together Makers who share her passion for quality and individuality in one accessible online space is fulfilling a dream to create a unique and sustainable brand which celebrates and shares this amazing body of work.
