Deliver Your News to the World Creates Free Marketplace for Craft Activities


DENVER, July 28, 2010 –, a new online destination for those looking to find and sell unique and interesting things to do, has created a free online marketplace for arts & craft activities, such as pottery classes, knitting workshops, photography courses and cake decorating lessons.

Unlike typical craft sites that primarily focus on selling products, Ooh is a new place for those who offer, among other things, craft activities and events rather than finished wares. Businesses listing their craft activities on Ooh may do so for free, and site visitors browse for free. Once they’ve identified a craft activity, visitors can simply register and pay for the class right on Ooh.

Examples of the types of activities on Ooh include:
• In Alabama, weekend workshops where attendees learn to create anything from beautiful bowls to bottle stoppers and Christmas tree ornaments, all from reclaimed wood, using traditional woodturning techniques.
• In Phoenix, pottery beginners learn basic hand-building clay techniques.
• Photography workshops in Portland, Ore. give attendees expertise from renowned portrait and landscape photographer, Arno Minkkinen.

“The arts and crafts community is thriving, and sites such as are a terrific place for artists to sell their wares, but we saw a hole in the arts and crafts marketplace for those small, local craft businesses that offer classes and workshops,” said Emma Drew, Ooh’s marketing director. “What’s more, we understand that most small businesses trying to compete in this economy need to keep expenses low, so we’ve made Ooh free for them to market and list their craft class, event or workshop.”

Today Ooh has more than 2,600 unique and interesting things offered by small, independent businesses around the world. The site has carved out a niche in helping those with specialty interests, such as arts & crafts, connect with like-minded people anywhere in the world.
