Members of Peak District Artisans are selected for their outstanding creative work in their field, with numerous award-winning and internationally recognized awards for their excellence in their particular discipline. They work in a diverse range of mediums from glass to giclee, wood to watercolors, clay to cloisonné and more.

Members source raw materials from local suppliers for their artistic needs wherever possible, supporting the local economy and celebrating the Peak District in the resulting art.

The group was formed in 1991, then known as Peak District Products, at the instigation of the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire who was keen to promote other high quality Derbyshire produce and producers alongside the Chatsworth Farm Shop . In 2006, the Earl of Burlington succeeded the Dowager Duchess as President of Peak District Artisans.
