January Makers consists of five ladies who share a passion for traditional art, particularly watercolor, and handmade crafts.
We initially called ourselves “January Girls” in jest because we met through an art event in January 2016, and we decided to meet up again for an art tambay around the same date last year. We all wanted try selling our artworks through bazaars, but we had our apprehensions and doubts. We didn’t know if our works would sell, and we had to think about other factors such as rent costs and time constraints. We finally decided to take the risk, because somehow, it’s easier to pursue your passion when you have your friends to support you and join your journey. Later on, we sort of rebranded our name to January Makers PH to avoid being mistaken as a K-pop group.
We are also the distributor of Hazel Scott Art products.
