Artists’ Tuck Shop is a project run by curator David McDiarmid. The initiative supports artists to increase income generation from art-related activities, aimed at enabling them to reduce time spent working in unrelated employment and thus focus more time on developing their creative careers.
We do this by commissioning artists to make unique, affordable art objects for us to sell on their behalf at markets, events, festivals and pop-ups via our tuck trolley, wholesale and online shop.
We also produce homemade snacks with artists using responsibly sourced ingredients and packaged using environmentally friendly materials to sell at markets and pop-ups or via wholesale and catering services.
10% of all sales and wholesale orders go to Artists’ Tuck Shop’s art commission fund to enable us to commission artists on an ongoing basis to make new works for Artists’ Tuck Shop.
