#CambsCreativeTreasures: Featured Images – 22nd March 2019

In the last #CambsCreativeTreasures blog series post I talked about Instagram challenges and what you found positive about taking part. This week over on Instagram stories we asked two questions about which hashtags you like to use or enjoy exploring. The first focused on what your favourite art/craft/creative tags are and the second was about local hashtags.

We loved your responses to our questions and thought we would share these today as part of this week’s round-up. Local hashtags you use/explore include #fenland, #yeswecamb, #cbgtown, #camblocal, #cambridgecl, #cambridgelittlegems and #igerscambridge. Others I enjoy following are #cambslife, #wearecambridgeshire, #instacamb and #visitcambridgeandbeyond. There are some which fitted both topics such as #handmadeincambridgeshire, #cambridgecreatives and #cambridgemade – not forgetting #CambsCreativeTreasures and #CambsCreativeScene!

Creative hashtags you use/explore include #indierollercoaster – a supportive community for independent creative business owners, #indieillogang – used by independent illustrators, #heytheremaker – a creative community for makers (also featured by @heytheremaker), and #shopsmallchangehabits – encouraging people to consider buying from small businesses. Some of you also suggested more specific tags related to your craft such as #beaded, #handmade or #sewistsofinstagram! For any fellow crocheters out there I would recommend #hookmehappy which is a lovely feed I found through Cambridge-based crochet pattern designer @doraexplored.

Ok… can you tell I quite like a hashtag?! We even aptly named our membership collective #WeAreCambsCreatives! I hope you enjoy this week’s round-up of local creative treasures which includes a few Mother’s Day gift ideas – and don’t forget to come and find us on Instagram over at @cambscreativetreasures and @thetrove_cambridge.
