Little Pearl will be a unique business that not only produces and sells art and artisan goods but also provides a platform for a select group of other artists and craftspeople to advertise and sell their works.  In addition, Little Pearl will deliver workshops throughout the year with 25% of all workshop spaces being given for free to those within the community who would normally be excluded due to disadvantages.

 The production and sale of art and artisan goods in various media including: textiles, clay, glass, paper, wood, edible and cosmetic. Whilst each article will be unique because it will be handmade, albeit to a standard pattern, there will be a provision for commission pieces.  Where possible, the materials used will be recycled.  The edible and cosmetic items will also be handmade, but subject to batch control and other regulatory requirements.

In order to deliver workshops, relationships will be developed with local educational establishments and law enforcement agencies, youth centres, retirement homes, community centres and disabled living organisations.
